A cartoon troll version of the Dukes of Hazzard, and in some ways, similar Smurfs, The Trollkins were a diminutive band of creatures who lived in a close-knit community and had a fascination with one particular word. Appropriately, the residents of Trolltown delighted in peppering their dialogue with the word "troll."
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.
