This was an an English-language children's cartoon from the 1980s or earlier.

It featured a girl with pigtails riding through underground tunnels on a gigantic (sandworm-sized?) green worm.

    I'm certain she can do better than that. When did she watch it? What age/ethnicity was the girl? Did she ride the worm bareback or on a saddle? Where did she ride the worm underground (through tunnels, in a cavern)? Was the worm bright green (luminous) or a dull green colour? What size was the worm (sandworm size or horse-sized? Why was she riding the worm? What language did she watch it in? Was it western-style animation of japanese style manga? Was it a cartoon aimed at adults (with nudity) or children? etc.

  • It was in English, a children's cartoon, and I don't think it was dubbed. She watched it in the 80's so it's from then or earlier. I'd say more sandworm sized and generally through tunnels.

  • Can she remember anything about the girl? Was she a child or older? Was she white/black? What colour was her hair? Did she speak at all?

  • It was from 30 years ago so her memory is a little hazy, it took a while to rule out caterpillar. I'll ask her what else she can remember tomorrow. I'm pretty sure both her and the worm spoke but I'll double check.

Solved. Turns out it was Guph's Giant Dirt-Devouring Worm in a few episodes of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1986) such as Gnomes on the March and was more of a blueish colour with perhaps a tinge of green.

    Could you maybe elaborate on your reasoning as to why you believe this to be the correct answer, like a quote or a screen shot?
