My GRACE has been telling me about this series from her childhood for years. I didn't believe it, but now I'm in love with a Kangaroo. NOTE we watch it on the computer, because even "GROUP 0" doesn't play on my SONY DV/BD player.
I have vivid childhood memories of watching "Skippy The Bush Kangaroo" on Saturday Morning TV in the United States when I was young. Although the premise of the show was a blatant rip-off of "Lassie", I fell in love with Skippy and the gang at first sight. It was like nothing I had ever seen in the USA. To see a loveable Kangaroo roaming freely as a family pet and solving improbable tasks was mind blowing. In America it's all Dogs, Cats and Hamsters and this kid had a freakin' Kangaroo as his sidekick! Plus the locales of the Outback were so alien and interesting compared to what was outside my door. Most American kids only see a kangaroo in a zoo and to see one playing drums with a rock band was a hoot (Yes, I know Skippy didn't actually play drums but back then I thought he could do anything). How this show made it to US TV is a mystery to me but it translated well to the US market. Years later I bought an all regions DVD player and this series is the reason why. Sweet, Loveable, Cheesey and fun, "Skippy" recalls a innocent time long forgotten. A Word of Warning: Once the "Skippy" theme song is heard you will never get it out of your head. In fact I'm singing it right now: "Skippy...Skippy ...Skippy The Bush Kangaroooo..."
I bought the Skippy DVD for my son to see some details of Australian life and to see what a fascinating animal a kangaroo is. Mission accomplished. What I did not expect was that, so many decades on, the series would be a big hit. Skippy is cute and this recording shall be making the rounds among my nIeces and nephews for a while to come. I'm glad I bought this product and I would recommend it to people with children under ten.
I bought this DVD series for my five year old grandaughter. She is very much into animals and singing. One day while I was entertaining her, and fast running out of ideas, I searched the internet for childrens songs. Coming across Skippy the bush kangaroo and remembering how catchy the song was I downloaded it to my phone. As soon as she heard it she came across to listen to the music. The song was played over and over and I had to explain to her who Skippy was. I decided to search Amazon to see if Skippy was available on DVD. Yes Amazon had it, at a decent price, so I ordered Series 1. Although the films are a bit dated she loved it and watches it regularly on her own and with friends. It does not matter how old or dated the films are, if the basics are there and the music catchy children will love it.

I bought this DVD for my granddaughter, aged 2,having sang the intro to her,which she loved (not my singing)! She loves animals and watching some of the episodes (admittedly intermittently, her face is a picture when the intro starts,this alone was worth the money paid! I can't believe it was that long ago!
