'Bobtales is an animated series of thirteen five minute Aboriginal Dreamtime stories for young children. These enchanting five-minute tales bring to life stories of how some of Australia's native animals came to look the way they do, and why the moon and the stars appear in the sky. Presented by Aboriginal storytellers, these beautifully illustrated stories use dynamic computer animation based on drawings by Aboriginal children from Western Australia to tell traditional legends in an imaginative and colourful way.'
