Childhood...
21 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I thought even as a kid that this show was really nice, and revisiting this show after several years of not being able to find it I still do. The theme song is wonderful, and stuck in my head for a long while, and the Australian locations are really striking. The story lines were gripping, original and touching, yes perhaps there were moments when it was predictable but that is occasionally. The dialogue was also good in my opinion, not superb but it was humorous with some levels of intelligence. The acting from all the human actors is very good and the characters aren't annoying, but Skippy the Kangaroo steals the show, he is really cute and endearing not to mention smart. Overall, a nice show, that is worth watching for Skippy and the scenery. 8/10 Bethany Cox
