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

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 »

Better than Lassie
23 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I always liked Skippy better than Lassie and Flipper. Most critics hated Skippy and the entire show. I have not seen it in 20 years, but the location was surely the attraction for me. It was quite a revelation seeing the adventures of a boy in location quite foreign to a Midwest town.

I doubt this would have much appeal to kids today, but you never know. Skippy was smart as a human and the exotic location of Outback Australia may not be as exciting for kids now as it was for me in the 1970s. I wish this was the type of show that would show up from time to time on one of the dozens of channels we have now. It would be good to see these old classics.
