    This review is from: Skippy The Bush Kangaroo Season 1 (Pal/Region 0) (DVD)

    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…”
