THE THEME SONG................ "Skippy.....Skippy..........Skippy,The Bush Kangaroo Skippy......Skippy..........A good friend true and through.
If you were a kid going up in the mid-1960's/early 1970's,then this show is for you and it bring back wonderful memories of a lost childhood. It is the Austrailan version of Lassie and the Down Under version of Flipper. This show ran mostly on Saturday Mornings during its day,but its legion of fans who grew up with the classic series finally brought back after a decade long absence. The show centered a ranger stationed park deep in the Austrailan outback with the father who was the ranger and responsible for the park and Skippy as head of operations and his three sons,and their marvelous pet, a intelligent and quick witted Kangaroo from the bush named Skippy whom the family took in as a pet---believe me,any kids dream pet!! Anytime the family and the ranger were in a tight situation it was always Skippy to the rescue to save the day from the common sight of outlaws,poachers,and anybody who trying to destroy his blessed home! Skippy was the coolest ever!! Recently,the cable network,Discovery Kids has digitally remastered these episodes and it is worth seeing them again as part of your family!!!! I would love to see a movie version of this soon in theatres with Heath Ledger worth taking a look at!
