About the Pilot: But a Episode that's Missing from You Tube. 30 Episodes are on you tube but there is a Un-aired Pilot that was made to get the Executives to Green-light the show. From my sources it was made sometime between 1992-93. The Plot for the Episode is Unknown but Modi Puppeteer "Mal Heap" did not play Modi in the Pilot. From what I heard from Ross Browning a Puppeteer who I'm friends with. Approached with Alan Highfield the Creator of the Show "Wendy Gray" who also Directed Episodes in 1991 of Mr. Squiggle. Ross and Alan asked about Working on the Show. She said "We want new Puppeteers to work on the Show". But one of Ross and Alan's Friends "Janette Dalgliesh" who worked with them on The Maestro's Company (SBS, 1984), The New Adventures of Blinky Bill (ABC TV, 1984-1987), Lift-Off (ACTF/ABC-TV, 1992-1995) as "Dorris the Pig", EC plays Lift-Off (ABC, 1994) and Controlling Sheep Ears on the 1995 film "Babe". Janette Dalgliesh played Modi in the Un-aired Pilot. You tube channel "Modi01" who is Mal Heap said "He has a copy of the Pilot on a VHS tape which is trying to get converted to DVD". So far the Comment has been deleted and there is not word if he converted it.
How we can help: I will be amazing to see it and we can help by researching, Getting in Contact with people involved with the show and going throw Garage Sales, Op Shops, ebay and Gumtree Listings. So if you live in Australia your a Archivist like me we have to try and find the Script or a VHS, Betamax and Broadcast Production Video Tape of the Pilot.
