Skippy: Adventures in Bushtown is an Australian animated series created by Yoram Gross of Blinky Bill fame. Set in and around a fictionalised Australian town, the series differs from the original live-action Skippy series, as it is animated and is set in a World of Funny Animals. For example, Skippy is a kangaroo who wears a baseball cap (and is also male this time).

Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, voiced by Jamie Oxenbould, is a young park ranger 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.

Skippy: Adventures in Tropetown:

  • The Not-Love Interest: Matilda is Skippy's closest friend and ally, yet there's no Ship Tease between them at all.
  • Off-Model: The premiere episode 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, as Skippy saves his life in the first episode and he becomes a Jerkass mayor.
