Airdate: Kangaroo Beach’s Hoppy Christmas Special

Pounce, Neville, Frizzy and Gemma are set for a Christmas adventure full of sun, sand and surf.

A Christmas edition of Kangaroo Beach will screen on ABC Kids in early December.

Pounce, Neville, Frizzy and Gemma feature in an action-packed Christmas adventure full of sun, sand and surf in Kangaroo Beach’s Hoppy Christmas Special.

The cast of kids return to voice the cadets, alongside Kitty Flanagan, Matt Hardie and Rupert Degas as the lifeguards.

Series 2 will also begin Monday, 23 January at 8.10am.

As the cadets prepare for the best Christmas ever on Kangaroo Beach, a homesick Ghërkinn realises he’s missing out on the beloved snowy Christmases he is used to at home.

Hot chocolates, chestnuts roasting by the fire and snow angels are replaced with blue skies, sun, and sand. The cadets rally together to show Ghërkinn just how fun an Australian chrissy can be.

But, an attempt by Ghërkinn to swim back home turns into a rescue mission and the cadets must think quickly to help bring him back to safety.

Featuring three brand new songs, including two familiar Christmas tunes ‘Hoppy Christmas’ and ‘Christmas Beach’, which are sure to become seasonal family favourites, water safety tips and Christmas cheer, this special episode is set to delight family audiences this festive season.
