Blinky Bill (series)
Blinky Bill is an Australian book series written by author Dorothy Wall in the 1930s. The books inspired an animated series beginning in 1993, titled The Adventures of Blinky Bill, which was produced as a follow-up to the 1992 animated movie Blinky Bill: The Mischievous Koala. The animated series, by far the most well-known version of the character internationally, was produced by Yoram Gross and ran for two series from 1993-95 (the second series titled Blinky Bill's Extraordinary Excursion), with a third series (titled Blinky Bill's Around the World Adventures) airing in 2004.
The first season had the townspeople of Greenpatch (a fictional Australian bushland town and the main setting of the series) trying to rebuild their home (after it was destroyed by loggers in the 1992 movie), while coping with a family of playful tricksters and con artists in the form of the town's family of dingoes (who redeemed themselves by the end of the season). In the second season, Greenpatch is fully rebuilt and a story arc formed in which Blinky and his gang get lost while on a school camping trip and have to find their way home. The third season had Blinky, Flap and Nutsy leave Greenpatch and travel around the world in a hot air balloon/caravan with a gang of escaped circus animals, returning the animals to their proper homes while being chased by the circus' owners.

|Movie||Blinky Bill: The Mischievous Koala|| In the Australian bush town of Greenpatch, the local animals are going through their days as normal until two men, Harry and Joe, start to take down the entire forest with their tractor. The animals evacuate as many trees fall down, and more trees are cut down including Mrs. Koala's home, and a falling tree knocks Blinky unconscious.
At sunrise, nothing is left of the town and every animal is left homeless. They move out of the grounds to search for a new home, including Mr. Wombat, nicknamed "Wombo" by the locals. Blinky, dazed and confused, calls for his mother, but she is nowhere in sight. Blinky rescues a young female koala named Nutsy from a cluster of fallen trees. They both run into Mr. Wombat, and Nutsy tells him that Blinky has amnesia, so Wombo informs Blinky of his past.
Blinky was a very mischievous boy, tending to cause trouble around the town, and frequently receiving scoldings from Mayor Pelican, his teacher Miss Magpie and his mother for his many antics. Blinky feels very guilty about the trouble he had caused for his mother, so he decides to find her.
Blinky and Nutsy make their way towards a riverbank where they meet up with a deaf koala lady, "Granny" Grunty. Down the river, they meet up with Blinky's friends Flap, a platypus, and Splodge, a kangaroo, and his family, who tell them about what happened to Mrs. Koala, who refused to evacuate out of pride of her own home. Blinky and Nutsy make their way to Mayor Pelican, who is assigning all the woodlanders to their recovery areas. Blinky approaches the mayor, who is less than pleased, and orders Nurse Angelina to take the children to the leaking North Cave, where they find that Blinky's mother isn't there.
Blinky asks Ruff, a frill-necked lizard, and his mother for directions to the woodchip mill. Ignoring the fact there is danger there, Blinky goes to find his mother at the mill, and Nutsy follows him as they make their way though a raging river and the woods. They finally make it to the mill, which is home to the very woodcutters that destroyed their homes.
The next morning, Blinky and Nutsy witness the woodcutters reducing the animals' former homes into sawdust, narrowly escaping the main buzz-saw. They stay in hiding untill night time, but as they try to escape, they alert the dogs. Blinky slingshoots the security light, and Harry's wife Flo urges her husband to investigate. Blinky manages to slip out of the mill, but Nutsy is trapped and makes a run for it, climbing into the bedroom of the family's daughter Claire.
Blinky tearfully goes back to the tell the others about the tragic news. Blinky's gang form a rescue party, forcing Marcia, a marsupial mouse, to join them. Blinky has Jacko the koookaburra drop Marcia down the chimney of the woodcutters' house, analysing the house layout and items. Meanwhile, Nutsy climbs into Claire's bed, who wakes up happy to find a real koala in her bed and manages to get her parents to let to her keep the koala temporarily.
Blinky's gang sneak up to the house at night and break into the house. Claire immediately hides herself and Nutsy in her bedroom cupboard. Splodge manages to fend off both the dogs and Joe, while Blinky keeps Harry and Flo locked in their bedroom. In the chaos that follows, the woodchip machines start up. Blinky gets Nutsy out of the house and they both fight off Harry. The chain of chaotic events against Harry and Joe end them up in a water tank. Blinky finally locates his mother and they all leave the mill in the woodcutters' truck. Claire waves tearfully goodbye to Nutsy, and Blinky and his gang make plans to rebuild Greenpatch.
