Meet Albert (voiced by John Cleese) a magnificent puddin' who can turn himself into just about any puddin' you can imagine.

It's up to his three friends to look after Albert (also Cleese), Bunyip (Geoffrey Rush), Bill Barnacle (Hugo Weaving) and Sam Sawnoff (Sam Neill). They are out to save the puddin' from the most dastardly puddin' thief of them all - Buncle (Jack Thompson). So grab your biggest spoon and make sure you're ready to tuck in.
