The Adventures Of Bottle Top Bill And Corky is an Australian children's animated television program that was first screened on ABC2 in 2005.[1] The animation is a mixture of CGI, 2D and stop motion.[1]

Series Synopsis[edit]

Bottle Top Bill is an imaginary character who lives in a town called Junkyardville with his best friend Corky (Miranda Richardson), a horse. The characters and surroundings are made up from everyday bits and pieces, the kind of things you might throw away without even trying to recycle them, like old boxes, tape, wire mesh and paper. That's why people call the place Junkyardville. Bottle Top Bill and Corky find themselves in different surroundings and meet strange new characters each episode. The stories happen anywhere from ancient Egypt, mythological Greece, the Wild West, to under the sea or in outer space.[2]

Interactive[edit]

The series and website are designed to encourage kids (3–6 years) to develop their imaginations and creativity by using things they can find around the home.
