The Skippy Girl

Do you remember the female representant in the main cast of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo? Clarissa “Clancy” Merrick was the beautiful girl, who came from England and stayed with the boys in the bush during most of the episodes. Watching some of the old episodes in later (as an adult) years, I remember why she was one of my favorites in my childhood. Liza Goddard is the actress name, and she was – and still is – very beautiful. She came as a fresh element in the TV show. Here she is in a photo shoot by the photographer David Mist. The photos were part of a book “Made in Australia” from 1969. Source: David Mist Archive (Powerhouse Museum)
