Great series for the kids.
12 August 2006 | by redivanSee all my reviews

When I was young, I'm 41 now, Skippy was a very popular series. A couple of weeks ago we bought a DVD with 12 adventures of Skippy for our children and they really love it! (They are 6, 9 and 12). The stories are short (25 minutes) and always have a nice plot. Filming of course doesn't apply to todays standards but acting is quite okay. Each episode can be watched separately but there is a sequence. People introduced in earlier episodes do stay for a couple of episodes. Skippy, the kangaroo is of course always the great hero, but it's also fun to see how the people in the series interact with each-other. Really a series you can watch with the whole family.
