The Adventures of Bottle Top Bill and His Best Friend Corky: Bill’s Birthday

Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July at 8.15am

The popular preschool animation continues. The show aims to stimulate children’s imaginations by encouraging them to use everyday materials to create their own characters and fantasy worlds. Each story centres on the easy-going Bottle Top Bill and his friendly horse Corky (voiced by Miranda Richardson), who embark on numerous adventures full of fun, danger and mischief.

In Saturday’s episode, ‘Bill’s Birthday’, Bill is looking forward to a great day full of exciting activities to celebrate his anniversary. In the event, however, nothing goes quite to plan, and all of Bill’s friends seem to have forgotten what day it is!

Sunday’s episode is ‘Rocks in Space’. Bill and Corky are shocked when they discover that a big asteroid is heading straight for Tamo’s planet! They must warn Tamo and stop the rock. But how should they go about it?
