In this revival of the charming Aussie series, Sonny Hammond is a park ranger with two children Jerry and Louise. The kids are involved in adventures that often have an environmental theme. Kate Burgess is a researcher at the habitat.
Brum is a car who loves to go around the city each day. Follow him as he helps save the day by identifying criminals, dances with people and sometimes even gets up to no good, only to be helpful later.
The location of Waratah Park is never really given. Although the actual park is located in Duffy's Forest on Sydneys northside, the park in the show must be huge as it starts on the coast whilst in one ep Sonny is said to be walking around Jenolan, a location thats is over 100kms from the coast. It is intimated that the park is outside Sydney in the bush yet they are always able to make a short drive to a suburban shopping area or even to drive Clancy into the Conservatorium of Music in the heart of Sydney city.

More often than not, if Skippy is standing around or appearing from behind bushes, a stage-hand's arm or hand is clearly visible pushing Skippy into doing what's required for the scene. See more »
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.
