I Love Classic Cartoons and Tv

How many of you remember the Australian TV program, Skippy the Bush Kangaroo?:kangaroo:
It is 54 years since the final program aired.
Remember Skippy? The incredibly intelligent, brave, resourceful Kangaroo who could untie knots, operate a two way radio and even play musical instruments.
The only other Aussie exports to come close to Skippy’s impact might be Crocodile Dundee and Bananas in Pyjamas😁
The world was so enamoured with all things Australian that no fewer than 128 countries bought the program to bring pleasure to their children, as well as showcase the Famous Australian Bush.
3 seasons, 91 episodes between 1966 and 1969 ensured that the tourists arriving on Australian shores skyrocketed.
The only lines Skippy had to reheaese were, “tch, tch, tch”. Her life long pal, Sonny(Gary Pankhusrt) understood every inflection of “tch, tch, tch” and always knew exactly what to do.

Loved the theme tune.
I vaguely remember asking my mum if I could stay at home and take my lessons on the radio too :slightly_smiling_face:
