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.

    Probably.

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