'''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]].

There is also a second channel called '''skippythe2nd'''. It can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/user/skippythe2nd here]].
