The Steam-Driven Adventures of Riverboat Bill

1h 15m Children’s, Animation, Fantasy 1986

Riverboat Bill is shown an abandoned paddle steamer in a lagoon by his young friend Dave Freshwater. A friendly but fire-breathing bunyip lives on board. With the steamer refitted and named the “Mystery,” they take to the Murray River, but fall afoul with the law. Bunyips are not allowed to exist, says Constable Boots. The Mystery is captured by Black Ben the bushranger and young Penelope sneaks aboard. They go through exciting adventures with steam trains and a hot-air balloon, pursued by the law and Bill’s old enemy, Captain Hugh Blowall.
