Western Animation / Skippy: Adventures in Bushtown

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.


  • Adorkable: Pos the cameraman possum. Skippy also has shades of this trope in his personality.
  • Off Model: Episode one has some very glaring instances of Suka (or her arm) being placed in the wrong area, revealing the cut-off lines when the animations happen.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Skippy sometimes uses these to great effect, including a fake doctor, to fulfill some goal.
  • Southern Gentlemen: Skippy pretends to be one in one episode to trick Croco into handing over an associate's old ferry the crocodile was intent on destroying.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Croco, Skippy saves his life in the first episode and he becomes a Jerkass mayor.
