Trivia

Goofs

Skippy's trademark 'tchk tchk tchk' noise was entirely fictional. Kangaroos make no such sounds. It was produced by someone clicking their tongue. See more »

Australia's Lassie
22 September 2003 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

I remember watching Skippy when I was little. It was in syndication here in the U.S. back in the late '60s and early '70s. Skippy was a kangaroo. There was one episode in which Mike Hammond had to dart a wild kangaroo to relocate it away from a populated area.

Sonny, Mike's son, didn't want him to shoot Skippy by mistake.

Mike's love interest in the show was Clarissa "Clancy" Merrick. I haven't seen the new series.
