At first Shifty was seen to be just as bad as the rest of his family. He admired Danny Dingo and Shifty always did what Danny ordered him. Despite this bad expierence, he becomes a member of Blinky´s gang. He is a coward and very easy to scare (polar bear Boris, Wallace and George, or in cinema). He always likes someone serving Danny, Daisy or Blinky in season 2.
Season one Edit
He is secondary character in the first season. For the majority of the season he is usually an enemy of Blinky and co, often tagging along with his older brother Danny Dingo and his scams. In Blinky Bill's Mothers Day he meets Nutsy's long-lost father Mr. Koala. In the following Blinky Bill's Wedding Picnic he breaks his right-leg.
He is a member of the Blinky Bill Gang, though he still gets treated hostilely due to past-experiences sometimes. He no longer supports Danny's antics, except in Blinky Bill and the Mystery Pollution. In Blinky Bill and the Earthquake he like the rest of the gang become stranded in the middle of nowhere and in the episodes after they all journey into the bush to find their way back home. In Blinky Bill and the Apple Thieves he was blamed for stealing apples from an apple-farm by the resident farmer and his son.
He is demoted to secondary character in this season as it primarily focuses on Blinky and his mission of saving the circus-animals he, Nutsy and Flap had rescued while evading the season's main-villains Basil Circus and Cyril Circus, as a result he is not seen in most episodes whatsoever, except for The Great Escape, Bushwhacked, Blinky's Birthday Surprise, Double Trouble and How Green Is My Greenpatch.
