any of a group of imaginary animals with long fur and long noses. They live underground in a large London park and at night they come out to collect the rubbish that people have left behind. They were invented by the children's writer Elizabeth Beresford in her book The Wombles (1968), and became very popular when the children's television series The Wombles was broadcast in the 1970s.
