Billy the Cowboy Hamster: The Hero’s Return

Billy the Cowboy Hamster: The Hero’s Return

Billy and his Wild West friends are back for four new adventures in this charming and fun animated series that has captured the hearts and imaginations of CHIFF audiences.

Alongside his best friends, Jean-Claude the worm and Suzie the stone marten, Billy the hamster is ready to throw himself into whatever new adventure awaits him. After entering a comic writing competition and then looking after their sick friend Jack, Billy and his friends face their two biggest challenges ever. In the very special episode ‘Billy’s Mom’, Billy finds a mysterious letter left behind by his mother, which leads him onto a treasure hunt to find the final gift she left for him. Then, in the exciting final episode ‘The Hero’s Return’, Billy finally meets his hero, Jessy Dog, just in time to take on an infamous gang led by Blind-Eye Biff!
