G'day Skip!
12 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love Skippy the bush kangaroo! He comes from the outback and he has a pouch full of fun adventures. OK so it is stupid so what, it is just a kids show but back in Australia we used to love this show. My sister and I would watch and just laugh our heads off like kids always seem to do. I'm trying to find a North American equivalent to compare it to but I can't really come up with the right one, at least not yet. I'm tempted to just say it's like Flipper except instead of a dolphin it's a kangaroo but the shows feel a lot different. In Flipper there would sometimes be real danger and the dolphin was really smart and playful but the show wasn't nearly as much fun as Skippy. Skippy the bush kangaroo was all about having fun and he was really funny, well at least as funny as a kangaroo could be.
