The Adventures of Bottle Top Bill and His Best Friend Corky: Keep the Sheep

Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th July at 8.15am

Continuing on Milkshake! this week is the new series of the popular preschool animation. 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, ‘Keep the Sheep’, Bill and Corky think Mrs Whistlehead wants to get rid of her sheep so agree to help her sell them. However, the Great Wild Woolly has other ideas and starts to cause trouble. Suddenly, instead of Bill and Corky chasing the Great Wild Woolly, he is chasing them!

Sunday’s episode is ‘Our New House’. Cedric the scientist has installed his latest invention in Bill and Corky’s home. It is a special computer that can cook, clean and even play games. But as Bill and Corky soon discover, if the computer does everything, there is nothing left for them to do!
