Cartoon Production Information:
The leader of the town was Mayor Lumpkin who, like most cartoon dignitaries, was a bit of a joke. His assistants, Sheriff Pudge Trollson and Deputroll Flake, were no better.
Each troll had a distinct character, especially the Mayor's daughter Pixie Trollson, who was, by comparison, the most beautiful troll in Trolltown. The communal pet of the village was Flooky, a dog who was able to communicate with his masters through a variety of sounds and skilled pantomime.
One of the most distinguishble characteristics of the show was its defined rural flavor. Each character spoke with a thick hillbilly accent, and banjo-laden country music provided the show's soundtrack.
While The Trollkins seemed like a rip-off of the more popular Smurfs, it should be noted that both programs debuted on the same day in the same time slot.
