'What's that Skip? There be dragons you say. You'd know Skip. But first can you go down the shop during quarantine for me, get a litre of milk, 2 oranges, and a Mars bar? Use my credit card. And a takeaway meat pie: just slip it in your pocket there to keep warm.And tell Joey no nibbling!"
"Hang on, Skip! You have a pouch! Didn't see that coming...Golly if you had that pouch for all that time you coulda carried my spare change and comic books in case, you know, we got banged up during one of our adventures."
"Come to think of it, maybe you also get me a capuchino, no sugar, and bring it back in there to keep warm. No spilling it. I don't want Joey's do dah over my coffee."

After doing my research I learn that 'Skippy -- The Bush Kangaroo' was indeed (or supposedly) a female eastern grey kangaroo  and between nine and fifteen kangaroos were used in each episode. So Skippy was really a mob of roos.

This 'mob' was fluent in English comprehension and  skilled crime fighters whose chopstick paws could manage many complex manoeuvres.

When I started reading this, I actually thought it was a T-Rex statue. It was only once you mentioned the pouch, that I took a enter look. As Skip is heading to the shop anyway, can she grab me a cup of hot chips with some vinegar sprinkled on top? Thanks.
