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.
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 »
This show, which revolves around an Australian bush kangaroo, is best described as Australia's "Gentle Ben" Television show. The show has the same story lines of a ranger, his son, their pet kangaroo, and the misadventures they get into. I like the show, as corny as it is, probably because it does remind me of other late 60's & early 70's adventure shows that I grew up with. If you like "Gentle Ben", "Flipper", "Lassie" and "Daktori!", you'll have fun with this Show.
