> Description 
The star of the show was Skippy, an Eastern Grey Kangaroo. Skippy was a pet owned by the son of the Head Ranger of the fictitious Waratah National Park (based on, and shot in Kuring-gai Chase National Park in northern Sydney), and the stories revolved around the park, its creatures and dangers and their adventures in the Australian bush. The series was screened in over eighty countries and its theme tune, compsoed by Eric Jupp is one of the best known and most recognisable Australian tunes.

The series was revived in 1992 as the short-lived The New Adventures of Skippy using an entirely new cast, plot and location with several children as the stars.

The name "skippy" was coined by the Greek-Australian comedy series Acropolis Now to refer to Anglo-Celtic Australians.
