Terry Pratchett’s Truckers

Terry Pratchett’s Truckers is a stop motion animated series that is adapted from the first book of Terry Pratchett’s The Nome Trilogy, produced in the United Kingdom by Cosgrove Hall for TV. Later it was released on VHS – edited together into a feature-length film.

Cosgrove Hall had plans to produce follow-ups for the remaining two books in the series, but these plans were shelved due to a change of management in the early 1990’s. The series consisted of 13 ten-minute episodes. The start of each episode would review the story up until then. At the end of each episode, there would be a cliffhanger, and the program would be continued the following week.

Masklin the Nome and his companions flee their unsustainable motorway-verge home and discover a race of Nomes living in a department store scheduled for demolition. Things are complicated by the store Nomes religion, which states ‘The Store’ consists of the entire universe, and denies the existence of the ‘outside’.

Masklin discovers from a mysterious object simply called ‘The Thing’ that all Nomes are descended from extraterrestrial explorers who crashed on Earth thousands of years ago. The Thing, actually a sentient computer from the original Nome starship, helps Masklin plan the escape from the doomed store. Through skill, courage and sheer good luck, Masklin and his friends manage to successfully evacuate the store Nomes before their home is destroyed.
