One of Nick Jr's Finest Koala Based Cartoons - The Noozles
Wait, something grabs Sandy by the ass. Something invisible that pulls her back into her bedroom. It was Pinky. This was the only time Pinky has ever been helpful. The writers must have not fleshed our her character as well as they would later on.
Blinky wakes up and Sandy calls her mom to see this magical shit. But then Blinky goes back to sleep. Sandy's mom thinks she's crazy with all this talk about talking koala toys and makes her go to bed early. That sucks, it's only like 6pm. Sandy didn't even get her steak dinner yet.
When getting ready for bed, Sandy discovers that rubbing Blinky's nose will cause him to come back to life. Interestingly, she doesn't tell her mom about this now, even though she can prove it. Instead, she and Blinky dance, dance, dance to The Noozles theme tune, which has a pretty good beat for getting down to. Sandy's mother hears the racket from downstairs and don't know what's what.
Pinky pops back into our world and asks Sandy if she would like to fly. Sandy says that is impossible, but Pinky retorts "It's not impossible...when you have mushrooms."
Pinky pops open her magic compact. Yes, magic compact. Most of Pinky's magical items are based on things you find in a woman's purse (I seem to recall a magic lipstick being used in a future episode). That's pretty funny, you couldn't have a girl use a magic purse in this day, it would be accused of being sexist. Make The Noozles now and Pinky would use a magic basketball or something because nowadays you need at least one girl in a children's cartoons that is good at sports. That's why I yearn for less politically correct times when a pink female koala could use a magic purse and no one would think anything of it.
Anyway, Pinky creates a bubble that surrounds Sandy and Blinky and allows them to fly outside.
Steven Spielberg should sue. E.T. predates The Noozles by a good two years and Spielberg holds the copyright on silhouettes over the Moon. I think the Japanese were just counting on Spielberg never seeing this show. Though if Spielberg did see this show, he would probably want to make it into a movie. It has a child experiencing wonder and magic, that is something Steven Spielberg likes to direct. He'd probably want to throw in some Nazis too, Spielberg loves making moves with Nazis.
Pinky tries to fuck with Sandy some more by closing the compact. This bursts the bubble makes Sandy and Blinky fall before Pinky opens the compact and brings back to bubble. Pinky is being a fucking cunt. Trouble really happens for Sandy when that dilophosaurus thing comes out of nowhere and scars Pinky off. The frilled lizard makes a few appearances throughout the show, popping in whenever and acting goofy. He's the Kramer of this cartoon.
Without the bubble, Sandy and Blinky plummet to their doom.
When the lizards runs away, Pinky goes back to open her compact but it is too late. Sandy and Blinky are DEAD! This is intense for a children's cartoon.
Pinky carries the dead bodies of Sandy and Blinky back to Sandy's room. She realizes that Blinky just put Sandy and him into "magically sleepy time" before they hit the ground. If Pinky rubs their noses together, it will make them wake up. No, I don't have the maturity to take a clip from a children's cartoon and not make it into an animated .gif of something sexual.
That works and the two come back to life. This makes me wonder what Pinky would have done if Sandy didn't come back to life. Pinky would have cheesed it back to Australian dimension, leaving dead Sandy on her bed, and never came back. Sandy's mom would be in for a shocker the next morning. And the doctors would have a hard time explaining how Sandy died in bed (when every bone in her body was broken and the coroner concludes she died from a fall) that doesn't involve convicting her mother of murder.
So, it's a good thing the nose rubbing worked.
Sandy and Blinky proceed to kick Pinky's ass. They pull on her magical purse spilling--in Pinky's words--her "bag of tricks." Yeah, Pinky really is a drug dealer. Blinky picks up a watch from the bag. This is the time travel watch Blinky will use a few times in the series. Also, he just takes it from Pinky without even asking. Pinky can't really use it, the wrist on the watch is about the size of her waist.
Sandy opens up one can which contains magic flying pancake mix. Yes, magic flying pancake mix. Girls keep all kinds of weird shit in their purses. That's going to stain the carpet. They have a fight with the pancake mix and Sandy totally clocks Pinky in the face. That that bitch.
The episode ends with Blinky and Sandy trying to kick Pinky's ass some more.
Well, it's been quite a day for Sandy. She discovered two magic koalas and almost died twice. What adventures await her!
The Noozles had a damn good run on Nick Jr. In the final episode, Sandy's cover is blown when her parents and grandma learn about Blink and Pinky. They all travel to Australia dimension, where we find that Sandy's grandfather has been trapped inside a bubble for decades. Whether they free him or leave him there and go back home, I can't recall, but I do remember that there were a lot of scenes with each character on the verge of tears as joyful reunion and inspiration secret-is-blown music played. In any case, The Noozles ended on a high note as the adventures of Sandy's grandfather came full circle.
During the late 80's and early 90's, if you watched Nick Jr., you were going to see koalas, and plenty of them. There was another koala themed cartoon from Japan on the channel called The Adventures of the Little Koala. The Adventures of the Little Koala was called Koala Boy Kokkie in Japan which literally translates into English as "Koala Boy's Cock." It started on Nick Jr. a year before The Noozles, but pretty soon they were scheduled back to back. This explains why you have some vague memories of there being more than one koala cartoon if you watched Nick Jr. back in the day, like a good American should have, child or adult.
Nick Jr. really got koala crazy there for a while. How about they both were Japanese too? Those Japanese people like koalas. And tentacle porn. I bet anime koala porn is big in Japan.
What The Noozles and The Adventures of the Little Koala Had in Common
The shows were both heavily focused on koalas. The only differences is that Little Koala was set in a world where koalas were the dominate species and have a vibrant civilization. In The Noozles, humans ran the planet and all sentient animals lived in Australian dimension.
2. An Annoying Pink Sister Koala
Little Koala has a little sister koala. I don't remember much about her, but I bet she stirred shit up a lot. Pink koalas are fucking trouble.
On that note, who's with me in trying to make "pink koala bear" a slang term for vagina? Let's do it.
By the way, the women who voiced Pinky was named Cheryl Chase. She would later do the voice of another little cartoon bitch, Angelica from The Rugrats.
Well, I guess that's all they really had in common.
That's the end of the article.
