It was an innocent era for family TV entertainment, a child and a marsupial – a friendship forged in the famed Waratah National Park, forever etched in the Australian Pop Culture landscape

Narrated by Magda Szubanski (Babe, Kath & Kim), SKIPPY: AUSTRALIA'S FIRST SUPERSTAR takes a fascinating and definitive look at one of Australia’s most cherished TV stars, Skippy the bush kangaroo. Born in 1968 to an appreciative television audience, Skippy The Bush Kangaroo was the creation of John McCallum. A simple nature-themed family show about a boy named Sonny Hammond, his Ranger father and kangaroo that was sold in 128 countries has been watched by hundreds of millions worldwide and helped put Australia firmly on the global map. This program pays tribute to the many people who worked on the ground-breaking series and celebrates one of the most iconic Australian television shows ever created.
