Kids Show: The Wombles

The Wombles was a British kids show in the 1970s. What is it with British kids and yeti in the 1970s?

They're white-furred, pointy-nosed creatures that spread the message that you can re-use garbage.

It started out as a 1960s children's book series by Elisabeth Beresford. In "The Wombles Go Round the World"(1976), she reveals that there is a snow-white Womble who is in fact the Yeti.

Does anyone have a scan of an illustration of the book that depicts the Yeti?
