Characters / Blinky Bill

The main kids:

Blinky Bill:

  • The Ace
  • Anti-Hero: Type II-IV
  • Bratty Half-Pint
  • Brats with Slingshots: or a Rubberband.
  • Catch Phrase: "Extraordinary!"
    • He has an additional one in the third series: "Careful is my middle name"
  • Determinator
  • Disappeared Dad: Its implied his father died of illness.
  • The Hero
  • Jerk Ass: At times he can be one.
  • Kick the Dog: He actually gets more than one of these in the "Wedding Picnic" episode. After Marcia bites Shifty, Blinky tells him that he is going to get blood poisoning and purple spots. Later, when Marcia believes that she actually has caused those things to happen to Shifty, Blinky rubs it in by saying that Danny Dingo will come after her for it.
  • Kid Hero
  • Lovable Rogue:
  • Trickster
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Miss Magpie and "Old Man" (a cockatoo) rescue Blinky and the gang from a balloon hanging over a cliff. Even Marcia gives their teacher a hug. Blinky however teases her about her missing tail feathers, which she had plucked out herself so the rest of the town could follow her.

Nutsy:

  • Break the Cutie: The Mother's Day episode, her birthday episode (where she believes they've forgotten), and the lost puppy episode.
  • The Chick
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sort of. She definitely has her moments despite normally being closer to earth than the others in the gang.
  • Disappeared Dad: He went missing at some point, but they're thankfully reunited in the penultimate episode of Season 1.
  • The Drag-Along: The third series has her joining Blinky and Flap just so she can keep an eye on them.
  • The Heart
  • Missing Mom
  • Nice Girl:
  • Only Sane Man: Or girl.
  • Panty Shot: Pink in the movie. White in the series (Season 1 and 2) and Purple like her dress (Season 3), quite frequent.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Marcia's red.
  • Team Mom:
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: In the first two seasons she's the girly girl to Marcia. The third season has her as the Tomboy to the French Poodle Penelope and girly girl to Ling Ling the panda.

Flap:

Splodge:

Marcia:

Shifty:

  • Ambiguously Gay: Not nearly as extreme as Cyril Crocodile but he has his moments like skipping around with a flower during the mothers day episode and showing an interest in hairdressing.
  • Butt-Monkey
  • Girly Run: In Blinky Bill's Mother's Day, complete with him holding a daffodil.
  • In Touch With His Feminine Side: About the only masculine things about him are his baseball cap and skateboard.
  • No Respect Guy: In Season 2 and the end of Season 1.
  • Put on a Bus: Inverted in series 3 - Splodge, Marcia and Shifty stay behind.
  • Tender Tears: He probably cries more than any other character on the show.
  • Yes-Man: To Danny in a few episodes, one episode he's a Servile Snarker.

The Dingoes:

Danny:

Daisy:

Meatball:

Ma:

The Adults:

Mr "Wombo" Wombat:

Mrs. Koala

  • Almighty Mom: She is always quick to discipline Blinky and whatever she says goes.
  • Good Parents
  • Mama Koala Bear
  • Missing Mom: Temporarily in the movie - she wasn't among the evacuated villagers because she refused to leave her tree home. Blinky's goal in the movie was to find her, until midway when Nutsy took priority. In the end she turns out to be alive amongst the trees, and they finally reunite.

Miss Magpie:

Mayor Pelican:

  • Butt-Monkey: He's one of Blinky's favourite targets.
  • Nice Hat: A top hat, as befitting the mayor. It gets squashed often, even in the intro!
  • Lets See You Do Better: For all his flaws, nobody else wants the job.

Other

Ruff:

  • Demoted to Extra: Quite quickly. In episode one, he seems prominent and even gets star billing in the credits but is quickly shoved into the background thereafter.

Jacko:

  • Demoted to Extra: He has a big and dramatic scene in the movie where he flies Marcia to the Wood Chip Mill. He doesn't drop off the radar but he becomes a Living Prop with the odd line in the series.
  • The Hyena: Laughs in practically in every appearance.
