50 years of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo

Australian plastics & an Aussie TV classic, Skippy the Bush Kangaroo. The TV series commenced production 50 years ago in 1967, going to air on @channel9 in early 1968, until ceasing in 1975 after an amazing run of 91 episodes.

Perhaps one of our greatest exports, Skippy has been aired in every Commonwealth country, Cuba and broke through the iron curtain to be shown in the Soviet Union.

Congratulations to the cast, crew, writers and all involved in this amazing cultural production, that started just a decade after television arrived on the Continental for the opening of the 1956 Olympics.
