* SequelEscalation - Each series got grander and more plot focused. The first series was mostly self contained episodes which could be watched in any order save the last few. Series 2 had more a storyline with the gang lost but again you could watch most episodes in any order. Series 3 meanwhile was even bigger. Blinky traveled around the world in what was easily the most arc based (characters regularly left the group once home so one could easily miss such episodes) and there were actual villains for the first time since the original movie.

Then the episode goes on with a crazed Goanana chasing the gang out of the mine disguised as a ghost. Once out of the mine, it's night time. Meanwhile Miss Magpie is [[ItsAllMyFault crying her eyes out]] while Wombo comforts her and the gang set up camp for the night, ending the episode with Nusty imagining all their parents worried sick. This sets up the storyarc for the rest of the series in what had up until then been episodic.

It's getting a {{CGI}} reboot in 2015, starting with a theatrical film. Needless to say, [[BrokenBase fans are already divided on whether going CGI is good at all. Heck, even the new design is a point of contention]].

Blinky Bill is the hero of a book series written by Dorothy Wall in the 1930s. The books inspired two TV series: The first one was a live-action puppet show called ''The New Adventures of Blinky Bill,'' which ran on Creator/TheABC from 1984-87 and produced by Richard Smith; the second one was a follow-up to the 1992 animated movie ''Blinky Bill: The Mischievous Koala'' and titled ''The Adventures of Blinky Bill''. The animated series, by far the most well-known version of the character internationally, was adapted and produced by Yoram Gross and ran for two seasons from 1993-95, with a third season (retitled ''Blinky Bill's Around the World Adventures'') airing in 2004.
