Cigar smoking Dr Alexander DStark (Frank Thirng) wanders around his private zoo.

Skippy is refusing food but the good doctor feels confident that his understanding of animal psychology in ordering a meal ‘fit for a king’ from his personal chef will break down the resolve of Skippy, who he believes is ‘no ordinary kangaroo’.

Skippy proves this by jumping straight at Dr Stark to escape from her cage – even managing to lock the door on her way out! This leaves Dr Stark furious as his henchmen unsuccessfully try to recapture her, much to the amusement of the birds and other captive animals. Finally Skippy makes her escape from the zoo by jumping over the fence.

This excerpt is from episode four, Long Way Home (1968).
