The third of the UK-release Chorlton & The Wheelies videos features another five episodes of 1976's most beguiling children's show centred around Chorlton ("The Happiness Dragon") and his adventures in Wheeldom. In "The Day Of The Grand Rage" the Wheelies organize a race through Wheeldom much to the disgust of Fenella, who tries to disrupt it every way she can. Chorlton discovers a set of bagpipes in "When The Band Played On" and forms a group with the Wheelies; whilst the return of colorful Wheeldom fauna upsets Fenella even further in "The Up And Down Plants," which with the help of her spellbook she attempts to destroy. Fenella's chief-at-arms Toady falls in love with the Queen of Wheeldom (Queen Doris) in "Toady Trouble" while "Tyred Out" sees the witch plan to ruin the Wheelies gathering of new "tyres" from the "tyre orchard" backfire.
