* AustralianWildlife - Well, it is an Australian show set in an Australian park, about a titular kangaroo, so yeah, pretty much everything we see can safely be considered AustralianWildlife.
* BeachEpisode
* TheBoxingEpisode - In one of the episodes, a boxer and his father sets up a training ring in the park. The episode focuses on how the father has pushed the son into boxing, but the son is thinking that he wants to do something else. The episode ends with Skippy wearing boxing gloves, invoking the BoxingKangaroo trope, but it is used as a joke and Skippy never actually boxes.
