Trivia

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.

Goofs

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 »

This genre is also reminiscent of Jay North TV Show, "Maya", about a rich runaway white boy seeking his father, his Indian friend, Sajid Khan and their elephant, Maya. Marshall Thompson show set in Africa was "Daktari".
