Skippy the Bush Kangaroo (known commonly as Skippy) is an Australian television series created by Australian actor John McCallum, produced from 1967–1969 (airing from 1968–1970) about the adventures of a young boy and his intelligent pet kangaroo, and the various visitors to the fictional Waratah National Park in Duffys Forest, near Sydney.
Ninety-one 30-minute episodes were produced. The show was filmed in colour and after airing in its home country, it was shown in the United Kingdom and Canada, where it was first screened between 1969 and 1972. The Nine Network readily repeated the series several times after Australian television switched to colour transmission in 1975.
