A childrens animation series depicting the adventures of Bill and his best friend Corky the horse. Bill and Corky are made from everyday bits and pieces - things that might otherwise be thrown away.
As each story unfolds, so does the world that Bill and Corky are exploring. In the distance a mountain forms from old boxes, tape, wire mesh and paper. A cave appears, made from a bucket and old carpet. Inside the cave a giant bat evolves from a bottle, plastic sheet and an old toy.
There are no limits to the strange places and characters Bottle Top Bill and Corky come across. There are stories in the Wild West, ancient Egypt, and mythological Greece, under the sea or in outer space. As each episode shows, there are no limits to what can be created using everyday bits and pieces. (from ABC TV)
