Being Careful Isn’t Fun!
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 explorer father’s footsteps. His father, Mr. Bill, went missing in the Outback sometime ago and Blinky is the only one who believes his dad is still alive.
When Blinky discovers a mysterious clue 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 Opinion Only:
Blinky Bob, The Movie is based on Dorothy Wall’s 1933 children’s books. Its young koala hero is endearing and courageous. Its soft color CGI animation is solid. With positive teamwork and perseverance messages in a simple storytelling, young audiences can enjoy a bit of this Aussie telling.
