Eric Jupp and his Orchestra – The Artist

Eric Jupp (1922 – 2003) was a British-born musician, composer, arranger and conductor who gained wide popularity in Australia after settling there in the 1960s, hosting a long-running light music TV show and composing for film and TV. He is best remembered for his theme music to the TV series Skippy the Bush Kangaroo.

Skippy – The Bush Kangaroo (Main Title) – The Song

Skippy – The Bush Kangaroo  is a song written by Eric Jupp for the long running Australian  television Series. The Ep included Skippy (the Min Title as well as Surf King, and on the b-side,  My Pall Skippy and Bush Tracker. Skippy the Bush Kangaroo (known commonly as Skippy) is an Australian television series created by Australian actor John McCallum, Lionel (Bob) Austin and Lee Robinson produced from 1967–1969 (airing from 1968–1970) about the adventures of a young boy and his highly intelligent pet kangaroo, and the various visitors to the fictional Waratah National Park in Duffys Forest, near Sydney.

The Kangaroo – The Shape

The kangaroo is a marsupial from the family Macropodidae (macropods, meaning “large foot”). Kangaroos have large, powerful hind legs, large feet adapted for leaping, a long muscular tail for balance, and a small head. Like most marsupials, female kangaroos have a pouch called a marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development. The kangaroo is a symbol of Australia and appears on the Australian coat of arms and on some of its currency and is used by some of Australia’s well known organisations, including Qantas, the airline and the Royal Australian Air Force. The kangaroo is important to both Australian culture and the national image, and consequently there are numerous popular culture references.
