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

Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th August at 8.05am

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, ‘Sheep Trouble’, the Great Wild Woolly is struck down with a bout of the hiccups. Bill and Corky try to help him, but to no avail. When Mrs Whistlehead’s sheep also get the hiccups, Bill and Corky seek the help of Cedric the scientist who may have just the thing…

Sunday’s episode, ‘Catch That Go-Cart!’, sees Tricky persuade Ned to go for a ride in Bill and Corky’s go-cart – without Bill or Corky’s permission! Having never driven a go-cart before, Ned soon loses control of the vehicle. Can Bill and Corky catch the runaway car before it is too late?
