Now Sonny Hammond is all grown up and in charge of a National Wildlife Park on the Gold Coast, Queensland. He and his children, Lou and Jerry and housekeeper Thelma live in the Habitat. Join Skippy, the lovable kangaroo, on her adventures in the "land down under". He teams up with her friends to foil the likes of animal smugglers, repellent rustlers, and even runaway convicts. Skippy the kangaroo in this series was a direct descendant from the Skippy the kangaroo from the original series. Filmed at Movie World on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
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.
