July 2009 – Watch out for ” Skippy – Australia’s first Super Star “. Itâ€™s surprising it has taken this long to eventuate, but finally there will be a documentary paying homage to our very own Skippy the Bush Kangaroo. WAâ€™s Electric Pictures, which created the documentaries The Hunt for HMAS Sydney and Gallipoliâ€™s Submarine, will produce the doco. “Skippy is an iconic star for many Australians of a certain age,” said executive producer Andrew Ogilvie. “He was watched by millions of us and many more millions overseas. He was one of the very first characters to make it overseas. It was sold in more than 100 countries.” Skippy: Australiaâ€™s First Superstar will tell the inside story of the television series starring the crime-fighting kangaroo, which hit screens during a time of social revolution.
