The Cramp Twins is a British-American animated series created by cartoonist Brian Wood. The show was produced in association with Cartoon Network Europe. It is about Lucien Cramp and Wayne Cramp, not-so identical twins who live with their hygiene-obsessed mother and their Western-obsessed father in the fictional town of Soap City.

Wayne’s and Lucien’s teacher is Miss. Hillary Hissy. Lucien’s friends include environment-friendly Tony Parsons and Mari and Luke Harrison.
