'What's Wrong, Skip?': Speaking Skippy's Language

'What's Wrong, Skip?': Speaking Skippy's Language
Fauna Productions

A compilation of clips from Skippy showing her legendary ability to communicate with humans.

Skippy's unique 'tch tch tch' sound could mean everything from a simple 'Yes' to 'Sonny's trapped down a well and I need you to fetch the helicopter so we can rescue him right now!'.

Also seen in this compilation are regular series cast members Head Ranger Matt Hammond (Ed Devereaux), his sons Sonny (Garry Pankhurst) and Mark (Ken James), Flight Ranger Jerry King (Tony Bonner) and Clancy Merrick (Liza Goddard).

A total of three series and 91 episodes of Skippy (AKA Skippy the Bush Kangaroo) were produced by Fauna Productions between 1966 and 1969. There was also a spin-off feature film, The Intruders (AKA Skippy and the Intruders), directed by Lee Robinson and released in Australia in December 1969.
