Belated thanks for those two responses. As we go through the first weeks of the autumn season in Australia, I wish you well. Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, known commonly as Skippy, is an Australian television series created by Australian actor John McCallum, produced from 1967–1969. It aired from 1968–1970 just before I arrived in Australia from Canada at the age of 26. The series, for those who do not know, was about the adventures of a young boy and his intelligent pet kangaroo, and the various visitors to the fictional Waratah National Park in Duffys Forest, near Sydney.-Ron Price, Tasmania, Australia
