Trollkins is a 1981 animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera that aired for one season on CBS. The show was inspired from The Dukes of Hazard and the Troll Dolls.

Essentially a cross between The Smurfs (which incidentally premiered the same day, September 12, 1981, in the same time slot (8:30 ET)) and The Dukes of Hazard, it followed the adventures (and misadventures) of Blitz, Pixlee, and Flooky.

Plot[edit]

The Trollkins are a race of trolls that had green, blue, and purple faces and lived in an underground, or rather in a tree, community called Trolltown. The episode plots follow the adventures of Blitz (voiced by Steve J. Spears), Pixlee (voiced by Jennifer Darling), and their pet companion Flooky (voiced by Frank Welker). Blitz's father Mayor Lumpkin (voiced by Paul Winchell) was somewhat of a short, incompetent, hot-headed, fumble-mouth of a mayor, whose talk was similar to Revs from Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch. Pixlee's father Sheriff Trollsom (voiced by Alan Oppenheimer), who was more mild-mannered than Mayor Lumpkin, and his two deputies Dotty and Flake (voiced by Jennifer Darling and Marshall Efron) were just as incompetent and fumble minded in maintaining order in Trolltown. Nevertheless, there was no complete love lost amongst the citizens of Trolltown, despite the escapades, including a renegade motorcycle gang known as the Troll Choppers (much like that of the Chopper Bunch from Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch) who terrorized the citizens of Trolltown from time to time, but was merely a nuisance, rather than a threat to everyone.
