Western Animation: Blinky Bill
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 The ABC 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.

Blinky Bill is an anthropomorphic koala who lives with his friends in the fictional Australian bush town of Greenpatch. In the film Blinky Bill : The Mischievous Koala, Greenpatch is destroyed. The cartoon series is set after they found a new home.

The first season had the townspeople trying to get their new homes in order while coping with a family of playful tricksters and bullies, the dingoes. By the second season, the dingo family made their Heel-Face Turn and Shifty Dingo was accepted into Blinky Bill's Five-Man Band, and midway during the second season a story arc formed in which Blinky and his gang got lost while on a school camping trip and had to find their way home. The third season had Blinky, Flap and Nutsy travel around the world in a hot air balloon, rescuing animals and being chased by 2 humans named Basil and Cyril who are the Circus Bros.
