The Trap Door was a claymation-style animated television series, originally shown in the UK in 1984. The plot revolves around both the daily lives and the misadventures of a group of monsters living in a castle. Willie Rushton voiced the characters.
The show has since become a cult favourite and remains one of the most widely recognised kids' shows of the 1980s.
The show was created by British animators Terry Brain and Charlie Mills. Later, Terry Brain went on to be an animator with Aardman Animations and has since worked on the six Wallace and Gromit animated films, as well as the animated film Chicken Run.
This adaptation by Nick Potter was published in Look-in magazine issue 49,1988.
