Credits Written and directed by Stephen Oliver.
Performers Narrated by Magda Szubanski.
Summary Skippy the Bush Kangaroo hops back on to the small screen in a new documentary that relives the international superstar marsupial's most famous, controversial and memorable moments and reveals how this lovable crime-fighting kangaroo became the emblem of a nation for children from all over the world. The star of 91 episodes between 1967 and 1969, Skippy The Bush Kangaroo beamed into living rooms in more than 120 countries, introducing the world to the wonders of the Australian bush and a cast of colourful characters, including Skippy's human companion Sonny, whose father was head ranger of the Waratah National Park. So sit back and get ready to take a nostalgic trip back to the glory days of Australian television as we laugh, cry and gasp at the unparalleled adventures faced by this unrelenting superstar whose theme song still resonates across the globe. Skippy: Australia's First Superstar features previously unseen footage from the iconic series and a slate of new interviews including a world exclusive with Skippy herself, whose sardonic wit and lingering ego make for revealing and, at times, controversial viewing.
