Equitainment's Comments

I have been looking forward to this movie arriving in for so long! It's an all Aussie translation of some of our most famous poems, stories and legends including The Man From Snowy River, Waltzing Matilda and The Loaded Dog by Henry Lawson.

This is the first film of six in total, with the next releases including other Aussie classics like A Bush Christening, The Man From Ironbark and Mulga Bill's Bicycle. One of my favourite Aussie bush ballads is The Day McDougall Topped the Score by Thomas E Spencer or maybe The Geebung Polo Club by Banjo Paterson? I'd love to see either of these come to life with Oakie and his mates!

I believe there are some books which have been released to coincide with the DVD, which I will endeavour to track down. Every man, woman and child needs a good copy of each of these Aussie classics, so the more the merrier, I say.

I have watched this DVD and LOVED it, I can't wait to see the next one, its a keeper! Well done Troy Dann. If Aussie kids learn a few aussie words from this as well, how fantastic. Teresa xox

Product Overview

Oakie's Outback Adventures, is an animated feature film that tells the forgotten stories of the Australian Outback through the thrill and adventure of Oakie, a Blue Cattle Dog and his new found friend Action Dann.

Oakie, a young blue heeler pup, is supposed to be delivered to Texas, USA, but through a courier bungle he ends up in Texas, Queensland, in Outback Australia.

Oakie is quickly befriended by Action Dann (an animated character identifiably based on Troy Dann) and they embark on a series of adventures, meeting many wonderful and quirky characters in the rugged and unique beauty of the Australian Outback.

Oakie along with his new friends, relives many of the poems and stories that define the Australian culture.Poems featured in the film include Waltzing Matilda, Mulga Bill’s Bicycle, The Man from Snowy River and Bush Christening by AB “Banjo” Patterson and The Loaded Dog by Henry Lawson.

This is a timeless story of adventure and excitement with a strong dose of Australian humour, masterfully created to ensure Australian culture and heritage is not lost to the next generation. Intended for families with younger children, this film transcends a healthy lifestyle message and educates children culturally and historically, on elements imperative for the survival of the Aussie way.
