Trivia

The outside of the General Store was based on the Mobil petrol station building in Terrey Hills, Sydney. The building was portrayed very closely, including the awning on the side and the worn, cracked step at the front. The petrol station, no longer there, was situated on the corner of McCarr's Creek and Mona Vale Roads, prior to the redevelopment of this area. See more »

A little dated but still okay
23 September 2002 | by (Hobart, Tasmania) – See all my reviews

By today's standards of animation, Blinky Bill is pretty dated, the animation is not as good as what younger audiences today expect. I watched this film with my niece and she seemed to like it, especially Nutsy. The film is about a bush community of animals whose lives are threatened by loggers, Blinky and his friends work together to save his mother and their families. My niece was already a fan of the TV show but hadn't seen the movie so it was interesting for her to watch. As an adult, the film was quite entertaining and easy to watch for the 90 odd minutes.
