Why isn't Skeeter a Muppet?

Discussion in 'Muppet Babies' started by Disneys Muppets, Jul 26, 2004.

    I say they should do the next muppet movie revolving around skeeter somehow. They could build the story around where she has been all this time. Or maybe the muppets could find out about where she has been and go on some sort of mission to find her. This way the muppets would actually be playing themselves. What do you guys think?

    The whole Skeeter thing could make a great TV movie! Maybe they could finally make a Muppet of the adult Skeeter and give her a Muppet performer (I think Eric Jacobson or Marty Robinson would do.) It could also include a flashback with Scooter and Skeeter as babies! (hey, they made a poser-puppet of Baby Skeeter!)

    See I think so too. It's got a lot of potential if they build a movie around the idea of the muppets trying to locate Scooters twin Skeeter. They could make it some sort of action type movie with a big muppet rescue at the end.

    Here's my theory: Skeeter saw her parents get murdered and went into the Witness Protection program. Scooter never said anything for fear of her getting killed or worse. That's just me, it could have already been said, but that's what I think. A Skeeter movie would be great, probably a straight to DVD one or something cause I don't know if they have anymore theater appeal(to get $60 million which is how much a movie must make to be successful now-in-days)

    Love the fact that Skeeter was used in Vic newest art display

    Where Are They Now?:
    Skeeter decided she didn't want to be a Muppet! She became a tour guide for the UN and then decided to become an ambassador to Lichtenstein. There she helped bring women's rights to the forefront, even reinstating women's voting rights. (Some of this is true.)

    I edited my post so that should help. thx for letting me know i forgot some people can't see the picture.:sympathy:

    That's because the Muppet Babies walk-around costumes for that show were designed by the Jim Henson Company! The others resemble how they appeared in "I'm Gonna Always Love You" in "The Muppets Take Manhattan," as well as on "A Muppet Family Christmas."

    DOAH! Looks like you beat me to it. lol :) I saw this excat pic and was going to post it here. Yeah I think that's what she might have looked like if she was so be come an adult Muppet. The only thing that bugs me a little is the old fashioned clothing.
    Makes her look like she's plaine Jane or something like that, but than again Skeeter was always kind of plaine looking to begin with.

    What book is that picture from and is it confirmed that that is her or could it just be a coincidence that they look alike
  15. Beauregard

    It looks pretty much like her. But Muppet picture books arn't necessarily cannon, so it doesn't mean that she is definately a policeman when she grows up.

    Although I can totally see her a tough, private eye...

    If you want a true official cannon version of grown-up Skeeter... And this was according to the article at Muppet Wiki... Try searching for a mint in bag set of 1998 Muppets Winter toy vehicles from Hardee's. She was never featured as one of the toys, but the JHC did the artwork for the bags and those had a grown-up version of Skeeter.
    Good luck and let the hunt begin!

    I remember that. I think I saw a picture of her once. I have no idea if there is one floating around the internet of her now, though....hmmm...

    I wonder if Jim Lewis would answer a question about her...

    The picture of the adult Skeeter, I'm told, was from "You've Still Got Me", per Muppet Wiki.

    Also, I have to say that I have to agree with Karen Prell doing Skeeter, given that both Skeeter and Red Fraggle have athletic personalities (if you notice in one of my fan-fic sketches, I described our proposed adult Skeeter's voice as a "Red Fraggle-type"). ;-)

    On the other hand, if we had a guy doing Skeeter, I'd picture Marty Robinson or even Kevin Clash doing her (I've often thought of her adult voice being a cross between Elmo's and Benny Rabbit's).

    I would think she would sound a little like Scooter

    Here's something I bet no one has covered....

    Muppet Babies is an alternate universe time line of how the Muppets came to know each other. As is evident that they only appeared in Baby form in MTM, during Miss Piggy's fantasy. Of course, this doesn't explain why they have home movies of them as babies in MFC, but let's say it was the edited version where you don't really get to see it.'

    Now, because it's an alternate universe, Skeeter doesn't exist. She is only a product of an alternate universe time line of actual events.
