I believe that you're thinking of "Dot and the Kangaroo" (1981).


"An Australian settler girl gets lost in the outback, but she is
befriended by a kangaroo who gives her a ride in her pouch as they
search for the girl's home. Aiding the pair are musically gifted
koalas, platypuses, and kookaburras in this 72-minute film based on
Ethel Pedley's 1899 children's book, with animated humans and animals
superimposed upon a live background."

search strategy:
"partially animated" kangaroo movie

I hope this is the movie that you had in mind. If not, please let me
know via the "request clarification" feature. Thanks.

Well, this film is only partially animated.  The girl and the kangaroo
are cartoons, but the background is live action.

Can you provide any other details about the film that you remember?

close, but this movie has real actors and live movie with a cartoon
kangaroo throughout the movie,  i believe I saw the movie in toronto
around 1985.
