I'm trying to find a children's film (possibly TV show episode), that was likely either British or Australian.

I don't remember much about the film except that the protagonist was a male child/tween who wanted to be closer to a girl. One of his wishes resulted in him becoming her baby.

There was some kind of entity following him and responsible for granting his wishes.

Film/show was likely made in the early 90s and was live action.

  • Live action or animated?

  • How were the wishes granted? By a furry creature living on a beach? May 15, 2015 at 11:48
  • @Covertwalrus I think a fairy or something similar. May 21, 2015 at 22:07

I'm extremely confident that what you are referring to is "The Big Wish", which as you mentioned was an Australian production, that was part of a TV series of Australian stories.

As well as being turned into the baby "to be someone that she will find adorable", his other wishes result in hime being turned into a girl, bully etc.

He was followed around by a being like you mentioned, granting his wishes. There is a trailer for the show here on Youtube, The Big Wish
