Left to right: Mayor Croco, Matilda and Skippy.Skippy: Adventures in Bushtown
is an animated children's series created by Yoram Gross of Blinky Bill
fame. It is set around a fictionalised Australian town. It differs from the other Skippy
series as it is animated and features anthropomorphic animal characters. Skippy, for example, is a kangaroo who wears a baseball cap (and is also male this time).
Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, voiced by Keith Scott, is a young park ranger (possibly early 20s) who resides in Bushtown. He always happens to get in the way of Mayor Croco; his greedy wife, Suka; his pack of goons, and his frequent get-rich schemes which often endanger the town.
