  • Ummm... People, you're being told what to do by a kangaroo...

    It's no wonder everyone who lives in Australia claims to know someone who knows someone who met a guy in the pub that reckons he once controlled the kangaroo paws in close-ups of Skippy's eponymous kangaroo hero. Yep, 70's family action set in a wilderness park where a kangaroo saves the day, week after week, with nothing more than a "tch tch tch" vocabulary and paws that turn door handles (in close-up only - rumour has it the 'stunt paws' were actually kangaroo paw bottle openers). There's a dorky kid (who didn't grow up to rob convenience stores), helicopter action, a blonde pin-up gal and a moralising dad. Think of it as Flipper Goes Bush.moreless
  • Worse movie ever.

    Worse movie ever. Well actually that's being very harsh. After all, I'm sure the production company had put a lot of effort in producing this and trashing it like I am doing right now seems downright unfair. However, I can't forgive those who waste my time with something like this. Why did I pick up something called The Adventures of Skippy in the first place?
  • The most coolest I've ever seen.

    Skippy is one of the most coolest kangaroos ever, I wish they had never took it off and Jerry, the flight ranger is sooooooooo cute and talented and funny but Skippy as everyone whose seen it knows he is the main character of the show no matter what, he will always be my fav kangaroo.
