Bindi Bounces Back

10/16/2006 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bindi Irwin: Click to watchA month after her father's death, eight-year-old Bindi Irwin is already back to work, filming her own documentary.

"Bindi, The Jungle Girl," a 26-part documentary slated for a January debut on the Discovery Channel, shows the Crocodile Hunter's daughter is ready to step into her dad's shoes. Bindi appeared comfortable and composed while filming scenes with a huge bison for the program. The cutie was all smiles for an interview with the TV show "Australian Story" for her first sit-down interview since Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray in September.

Since her father's death, Bindi has remained a positive fixture in the spotlight. She delivered a moving reading to her late father at his memorial service and just last week presenting an award on his behalf at the Australian Kids' Choice Awards.

Though it may seem like too much too soon, family friend and producer John Stainton tells the TV program, "She is very used to having a crew around ... they are most professional family I've ever worked with. Little Bindi, she is just a chip off the old block."

Bindi is also reportedly set to star in a fitness DVD which boasts her singing and dancing debut.

Some of you people posting are downright mean. She is a little girl. I think it takes alot of courage to do what she is doing. Just losing her father in the manner that she did. Carrying on his legacy like this is BEAUTIFUL. Period. Her father had such passion for what he did. She learned that from her father. The world needs more people like this.
As for #2...Pimping you daughter...someone has to pay the bills? Im sorry They have more than enough money...Hello her Grandfather OWNS THE ZOO. Her FATHER RAN IT. This isnt somrthing being done for money. Its called a cause..a passion...doing something for your world. GROW UP AND STOP HATING PEOPLE TO MAKE YOURSELF FEEL BETTER FOR YOUR OWN SHORTFALLS IN YOUR LIFE. REMEMBER SHES A CHILD.

We could all learn a thing or two from this little girls strength and love. God Bless her and her family.

We, are not amused.    

Pimping your eight year old daughter is shameless, tasteless and shows no class: but I guess someone has to step up and see the bills get paid. Heaven forbid these people should get regular jobs, the kind that adults have.

Bindi is truly an amazing piece of talent!. She is defenitly gifted with her father's love for animals and does so well in front of the camera. Just like a little movie star at such a young age.
I bet Terry is so proud of the way she holds up since her father's death.

Where is your talent? Looks like the only talent you have is to sit in front of a computer and make wise cracks on one who can't defend themselves.
That must make you feel so powerful. What a joke you are, and so manly of you.

Gosh, she's just a breath of fresh air, and so together. Terri and Steve were wonderful parents, and you can tell, Terri has been there for Bindi every step of the way. Bindi is determined to follow in her Daddy's footsteps, and I know there's an angel smiling down on her every moment. Bindi, you keep up your dad's legacy, and the world's prayers are with you and your family.

Actually both spelling are acceptable blond or blonde. Blond is sometimes used for female as well as male, but blonde is preferred for female. With that said I am not defending this obviously "challenged' poster. Hey he may really need to ride the short bus, it seems like he’d fit right in. I just wanted to clarify.

Am I in trouble now for going up against you power posters? Hope not. ;->

No problems clarifying. Thank you for that.
Still no love lost for the imbecile short yellow bus driver when he has nothing but criticism for the innocent who can't defend themselves.
He's not the only one who can be judgemental. Especially when they deserve to be like he/she/it is.
