Skippy the Bush Kangaroo

AUSTRALIA’S MOST exported show (to 128 countries at last count). The Yanks had Lassie and Rin Tin Tin, we had a kangaroo. Skippy could do anything – fly helicopters, play drums, control runaway speedboats, you name it. All rather dopey, but kids loved it. Starred ED DEVEREAUX, LIZA GODDARD and TONY BONNER.

    Reruns of Skippy are still shown on early morning television. I’ll have to check.

    I remember it being shown in the 1990s, not sure if it was a repeat or a revival.

    Goodness Gracious Me had fun redubbing it, in the style of The Flashing Blade by the cast of On The Waterfront.
