The SECOND greatest Action Hero turns 50?, I say second because I'll be 65. Got to love the Aussies, they had Skippy, we had Rin Tin Tin.

Remember finding and watching Skippy when we had a 9' satellite dish that could bring in shows from around the world. I always thought that between Skippy, Lassie and Flipper, those 3 saved the world.

I always found Skippy to be a cheapskate.....I swear he had short arms and deep pockets and would never pay for anything! :tongue3:

I remember when I first started buying stuff off of eBay (15 years ago maybe??), one of the first things I ordered was Tim Tams from Australia! Mmmmmmmm

We now can get them at our local shops around holiday times.......which is probably good for my waistline that they are only available then. :laughing7:

Clancy was the hottie....I think it was all about Clancy, Skippy was a friend and a roo ...but nothing compared to that hot chick in the caravan....
I expect sunny ended up on crack at mardi gras....Jerry was pretty cool

I heard he had a stunt double.

yes he had a set of fake hands/ arms that could do a myriad of things, fly a chopper, extinguish bush fire, open a beer, even scratch his own crack attack (and kill) a goanna...where was Sunnys mother? I just remember all the episodes had unimaginative and crappy titles....

They did! They're all gone now and the world is going to hell in a hand basket!
