AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Animated adaptation of Blinky Bill, an original Australian bush (koala) character conceived by Dorothy Wall. Though often considered the second series of The Adventures of Blinky Bill, this series was televised with the title Blinky Bill's Extraordinary Excursion.

'The second series tells of Blinky Bill and his animal friends becoming lost while on a school excursion in the Australian Bush, and their adventures while finding their way home. In the tropical north, they take on some bird smugglers and help a sensitive crocodile get back with his family. On the coast, they settle a dispute between penguins and sea birds over a lighthouse. They also liberate some animals from an automated farm, gatecrash an exclusive holiday resort, help run a cinema, join a circus and visit the city. And despite being lost themselves, they never hesitate to help out other animals in need.'
