Hi guys,
I don't know why I haven't had this idea before, to ask on a forum..!

Basically I have VERY vague memories of a cartoon that have haunted me as long as I remember...

Ok, here is what I recall:

A hot air balloon or flying machine of some kind, flying over volcanoes that erupted blasting out beams of bright coloured light that the balloon had to dodge

Pirates! Who sang a song, something like "Oy oy oy oy oy oy.." and then something about a cutlass

Bunyips!! I'm sure that's what they were called... shaggy dog-like things that swam around in tha water...
(this is NOT Dot and the Kangaroo, that's the one my fruitless internet searches have always brought me back to!!)

If someone has ANY idea what this damn thing was, I will be ETERNALLY grateful....!!

Cheers
Martin

Hmmm... looking at that on Youtube... I don't THINK it was that... I think the characters were human..

You know, it could have been Australian or something, what with the Bunyips...

Hmmm, I'm starting to think maybe I dreamed this cartoon when I was younger... I mean that Bear Islan thing looks possible, but I'm sure it was people not animals... and I looked at a few clips on YouTube and there is the balloon, but I'm sure the pirates in what I remember were actual pirates, and they had a catchy song...

The bunyip... oh the bunyip... is that the part I'm dreaming?? I remember it clear as day, more than one, swimming around in the water, looking a bit like dougal from the magic roundabout...but I don' think they were integral to the story... I remember the volcanoes more than anything, the way they spewed up dead straight beams of light, each one a different colour...

Maybe its time I went off to the loony bin!!!

No balloons or volcanoes, but maybe:

Pirates of Darkwater
