The Magic Pudding

Bunyip Bluegum is a koala bear who has lost his parents and can't find them. While many of his friends and relatives fear that Bunyip's folks are dead, Bunyip is certain they're still alive, and sets out on the road to find them. In his travels, Bunyip makes several new friends, including landlocked sailor Bill Barnacle, a penguin named Sam Sawnoff, and Albert, a magical pudding who can change flavors and never runs out, no matter how much people eat him. But the mean-spirited wombat Buncle discovers Albert and decides he wants the magical pudding all for himself, and Sam, Bill, and Bunyip must come to his rescue.
