Dot & The Kangaroo: A timeless tale of childhood adventure, adapted from Ethel Pedley’s much-loved book, Dot and the Kangaroo captures an era of innocence and discovery, where Australia’s wilderness is home to a variety of wide-eyed and inquisitive creatures ready to make friends.

Follow the journey of settler’s daughter Dot, a naive young girl lost and alone in the bush – a desperate child in need of help to find her way home. Overcoming her fears of the surrounding unknown, Dot is befriended by a big Red Kangaroo who is searching for her lost Joey.

Safely nestled in the kangaroo’s soft pouch, Dot has the trip of a lifetime, bounding from one adventure to the next – coming into contact with a variety of bush creatures along the way such as a koala, platypus, kookaburra and even a mob of angry dingoes.

A unique blend of live action photography and cel animation from award-winning filmmaker Yoram Gross (Blinky Bill), with lively songs and music by Bob Young and John Palmer, Dot and the Kangaroo is a charming Australian entertainment for young at heart.
