The outback is a very hot place,
especially when you're tired and you've been walking all day.
What this little penguin could do with is a nice cold drink.
But it's not that easy to find one in the outback.
Frank and Buster were out looking for anyone who needed their help.
-Is that someone?
-No...sorry. It's just a rock.
-Did you put fuel in the plane this morning?
Neither did I.
We'll have to walk home and get fuel, if we can find the empty can.
A-HA! Oh, dear!
-Which is the way back?
-I don't know.
Everything looks different from down here.
BOTH: Ah! That way!
BOTH: Oh! That way?
Oh, we're lost.
What are we going to do?
BOTH: A-Ah! Squeak!
-The name's Frank and this is Buster.
-Pleased to meet you.
-What's your name?
-Do you need help?
-You want something to drink?
-And something to eat?
-Well, good thing we're here to help.
-If only we weren't lost.
Wow! A map!
-Can you read maps, Frank?
Oh, of course, Buster.
-No, I'm afraid this map is broken. We can't use it.
Look! It's the homestead.
-I don't think that map was broken, after all.
Let's find you somewhere cool to sit and get you a cold drink.
-And some food.
-Quite right, Buster. We're here to help.
-Here you go!
Before Frank and Buster could find out what their friend liked to eat,
they had to figure out what kind of animal she might actually be.
Hi, Frank. Hi, Buster.
Can you come and... Oh, who's that?
Where did she come from? What's her name? What is she?
-We don't know, Mitsy.
-That's what we're trying to figure out.
I think she's a duck.
She's not a duck, Mitsy.
Look! Those are duck feet. I know duck feet when I see them.
Are you a duck?
Maybe she's one of those.
I still think she's a duck.
- Ned thinks she's a duck. - I... Uh...
I think I've found you.
-Yes, yes. You're a penguin.
We still say she's a duck.
Are you coming?
It says here that penguins like to eat fish. Are you hungry?
This is all we've got.
I hope it'll do.
-Hey! Hey! Not so fast!
She's finished already. If all she eats is fish,
we'll have to get more. Quickly.
Frank and Buster soon realised that the penguin
could catch as much food as she wanted.
Before long, she was making herself quite at home.
Oh, she's so sweet, Frank.
Oh, I hope she stays forever.
Breakfast time, little penguin! Where are you? Oh!
-I think she's leaving.
-Yes. She's had a good rest
and she's got some water and food.
-So it's time for her to go.
There was one thing she wanted.
- Say cheese. - CHEESE!
-I think she wants a picture with you now, Mitzi.
Frank, I wanted to ask you something. Where's the plane?
BOTH: The plane!
Better not forget this!
Goodbye, little... Um... Penguin?
Oh! Thanks for finding our plane.
Yes. Thank you, little penguin.
Now we can help everyone again.
This time, she helped us.
Goodbye, little penguin.
Frank and Buster learned that everybody needs help sometimes.
Even the Koala brothers.
But that's not quite the end of our story.
Sometime later, Frank and Buster met George the postman.
G'day, Buster. Just one letter for you and Frank today.
It's from Antarctica. It still feels cold.
It's from our little penguin friend.
It says here her name is Penny.
Oh, I hope she'll come back to visit us soon.
You know, I'm going to miss that duck.
