50-year anniversary of this iconic Aussie series

Exactly 50 years ago, Skippy the kangaroo bounced onto Aussie TV screens.

The adventures of Sonny Hammond and his bush kangaroo Skippy entertained families across the country from 1968 – 1970.

But hunky helicopter pilot, Jerry King, played by Tony Bonner was a favourite among the ladies.

“The same producers then became the producers and core of Fauna Productions who then created Skippy.”
