208 x 2 minute episodes
Created in France as Les Shadocks, The Shadoks were stupid and mean-spirited bird-like creatures who inhabited a two-dimensional planet.
The Gibis were intelligent (they kept their brains under their bowler hats) and polite creatures who also inhabited a two-dimensional planet.
Both races were looking for a new home planet and had their eyes on the Earth as their potential new home and both began to construct rockets to reach it
Once both races reached Earth, much mayhem followed and they eventually realised it was not the ideal home they first thought.
The Shadoks appeared on Thames Television between August and October 1973 with Kenneth Robinson providing the English narration.
