SKIPPY, a TV star all over the world, has
made a movie, "The Intruders," an exciting adventure story of Australia's abalone divers from Mallacoota, Victoria. Hired in an illegal bid to salvage gold bullion, they surprise Matt Hammond by turning up to hunt for abalone
off Waratah National Park.
Skippy fans will see their hero hard at work with Sonny, investigating, and doing his bouncy best to draw the villains off and save Sonny. And — as if you didn't know — Skippy becomes the hero of the hour.
