Originally a comic strip, the peas' stories
are told in thirteen 4½-minute segments.
According to the programs' theme song,
the Peas live "down at the bottom of the garden"
in a little village of flower pots.
The main characters consist of:
- Garden-Pea, Zip-Pea, (the community
- Hip-Pea (a guitar-playing hippy)
- Nap-Pea (who wears diapers)
- Soap-Pea (he can make bubbles)
- Tea-Pea (a cafe owner)
- Scrap-Pea (a junkyard owner)
- Dough-Pea (a baker)
Of course, the bad guys in the village
are called Creep-Pea and Black-Eye-Pea. Their
mischievous activities included stealing all the
Peas presents at Christmas and holding various
village residents prisoner in Creepy Castle.
Other landmarks in the area are Poddington
Hall, and Poodle Island.
Aside from some British lingo like
"Chips" (French Fries) and "Marrow" (Squash) the
program is easy to understand and will easily
capture the imagination of the show's young
The program was created by Colin Wyatt.
It aired 13 episodes.
THEME SONG LYRICS
Down at the bottom of the garden,
Among the birds and the bees,
A little lot of little people,
They call the Poddington Peas.
There's Creep-Pea, Black-Eye-Pea and Dump-Pea.
Keep it a secret now please.
There's Zip-Pea, Hap-Pea and there's Sweet-Pea.
And all the Poddington Peas!
The Poddington Peas!
