''Skippy Shorts'' is a... ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs unique]]'' puppet–based YouTube channel run by [=NearFar=] Productions. It stars an insane puppet named Skippy (voiced by Greg Harrisberg), who mainly retells classic stories in his own "style" and answers e-mail questions, along with an ensemble of other crazy puppets, including his best friend Finney (voiced by Jack Rennon), a [[CartoonCreature weird white animal]], a [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace trigger-happy]] [[BadCopIncompetentCop cop]] called the Cop and his friend [[NonHumanSidekick Iggy Iguana]], a senile sociopath named Rufus T., a magical wizard and his apprentice, and [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many, many others]]. Almost every video ends with Skippy yelling, "STUPID!", which perfectly sums up the channel's whole style and tone. The channel can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/user/skippyshorts here]].

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Several videos (of the "DUM NEWS" branding) paint certain celebrities and especially politicians in a very negative light, often reducing them to blubbering messes.
** If Chelsea Clinton is name-dropped, it's usually a joke about her appearance.

* AndNinetyNineCents: Taken to the extreme with the "Being Just Like Skippy Kit" in "Ask Skippy #14," where Finney mentions the "reasonably low price" - $99999999999999999.02"

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: Skippy's review of ''The Trevor and Officer Harry Show'' in "Ask Skippy #17." He says he'll need one word and everyone (including an apparent child audience) assumes he'll say "STUPID!" He instead throws them a curveball and says, "Salamander!"


Added DiffLines:

* DropInCharacter: Spoofed in ''The Trevor and Officer Harry Show'' in "Ask Skippy #17" with Clarence, who walks into the character's house through their pantry.
--> '''Clarence''': Like, hey, guys! Can I borrow your mayonnaise? ''(crowd goes wild)''


Added DiffLines:

* Leitmotif: The Old Lady's appearances are scored by the same, creepy music.


Added DiffLines:

* NoFourthWall: Skippy and others are well aware that they're puppets.


Added DiffLines:

* VerySpecialEpisode: Parodied in "Ask Skippy #17" with ''The Trevor and Officer Harry Show'', where the valuable lesson they learn is to keep their pantry door locked to prevent comic relief Clarence from breaking into their house. Complete with music cue from ''FullHouse''.

Added DiffLines:

** Some seemingly recurring series of videos never made it beyond one video, such as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERYyRTuTi_E Skippy's Song Reviews]]" and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLHg49tOZsc Skippy's Silent Shorts]]." The latter was {{Lampshaded}} in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g26AgHbs35E promo for their website]], probing viewers for their favorite types of videos.
--> '''Groggle''': I like the silent shorts! ''(gets punched in the face)''
--> '''Jack Rennon''': WE ONLY MADE ONE OF THOSE!


Added DiffLines:

* CreatorCameo: The two puppeteers often play whatever live-action, human roles there are in the videos.


Added DiffLines:

* IronButtMonkey: The Old Lady, whose advances on Skippy and others are met with shootings, beatings, maulings and spearings. She's always fine the next time she's seen.


Added DiffLines:

* LongList: Employed in a number of videos:
** "Ask Skippy #14" is mainly a list of all the random, ridiculous items in Skippy's "Being Just Like Skippy Kit."
** "Ask Skippy #20" consists of the characters listing off every instance they know of the word "clawverbro."
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3kJky2HvzA An unpublished video]] shows Finney trying to get into a Skippy Shorts party and spends nearly 30 seconds rattling off words he thinks are the password (which is "stupid").
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ha8yrV-316Y A video]] lists a bunch of random citizens George W. Bush claims to know.

--> '''The Cop''': A deal like that should be...''illegal!''



* BerserkButton: Don't make fun of the Cop's mother (or call attention to her mustache).



* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: In "Ask Finny #2," Finney claims he pleases the ladies by buying them chocolates, flowers and chocolate flowers.
