The Lyre Bird: Season 1, Episode 6
It’s a Skippy miracle when another female cast member joins the show. Hosts Ashwin, Lee and Jon help acclimatise you to Lisa, a ballerina studying birds for choreography inspiration. Yes, that’s really what she’s doing. The Hammonds will need to put their shock of seeing a woman aside though, when a visiting botanist goes missing.
Cage of Koalas: Season 1, Episode 5
In this week’s episode, hosts Ashwin, Jon and Lee introduce you to new villain (or is she?) Dr. Steiner, a rifle twirling German scientist interested in studying koalas by trapping them in tiny cages. When Steiner stumbles into danger, the most important question becomes whether or not her compass skills can save her. We still can’t believe our ears with this one!
Long Way Home: Season 1, Episode 4
Cover your eyes (or ears), as Lee, Jon and Ashwin take you through the bloodiest episode EVER! Poor Skippy is kidnapped by the nefarious Dr Stark, who is set on sticking Skippy in his zoo. The ordeal she goes through in her trek back home is shocking. Seriously, WTF.
The Golden Reef: Season 1, Episode 3
What happens when underwater geologists find gold beneath the National Park? Thieves with guns, that’s what! Join Lee, Ashwin and Jon as they give you the rundown on how Matt, Sonny and Skippy try to stop them!
Sports Car Rally: Season 1, Episode 2
This week, hosts Jon, Ashwin and Lee give you a back stage pass to a dangerous car rally, recklessly planned through Skippy’s National Park. Animals risk being run over (for real!), and an accident is waiting just around the corner…
The Poachers: Season 1, Episode 1
In this inaugural episode of Skipp It, hosts Jon, Lee and Ashwin guide you through the first aired Skippy The Bush Kangaroo episode, 'The Poachers.' Along with the titular kangaroo, you'll be introduced to the Hammond family (Matt, Sonny, Mark and Jerry), as they investigate a trio of diabolical game fishermen, who they spy catching animals at night.
