Blinky Bill is a little koala with a BIG imagination! An Adventurer at heart, he dreams of leaving the little town of Green Patch and following in his missing father's footsteps.
Mr. Bill went missing in the Outback some time ago and Blinky is the only one who believes his dad is still alive. When Blinky discovers a mysterious marker that hints at his dad's whereabouts, he embarks on a journey that takes him beyond the boundary of Green Patch and into the wild and dangerous Outback. He quickly makes friends with Nutsy, a zoo koala, and Jacko, a nervous frill-necked lizard. Pursued relentlessly by a vengeful cat who has a personal score to settle with Blinky, the trio must learn to work together if they ever want to survive the rugged Australian landscape and find Blinky's father.
My youngest son absolutely loved this movie and watched Blinky Bill several times within a couple of days. Blinky is so adorable and personable and the story was something that is intriguing to children and keeps their attention throughout the entire film. Although new to our household, Blinky Bill is one of Australia's most recognized characters and a bona fide icon.The lovable antics of this mischievous koala have captured the hearts of millions since the release of The Adventures of Blinky Bill book series in 1933. In 1992, the first feature film, Blinky Bill: The Mischievous Koala, was released in major territories. This was followed by several successful TV series and movies which continue to air around the world today.
Blinky Bill: The Movie is now available on DVD and Blu-ray at Walmart and available for download on iTunes, VUDU, Amazon and Google Play from Shout! Factory Kids!
