  • Skippy Squirrel is an cute character and Slappy Squirrel's son. His friends are Pinkie Pie, Buster Bunny, Harry Potter, Jelly Otter, Luke Skywalker, Kirby, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Doraemon and Tanis.
  • Performer(s) Appeared in Skippy Squirrel is a character in the animated television series Animaniacs. He is Slappy Squirrel's young nephew whose chipper personality is the polar opposite of his aunt's. His characterization varied from appearance to appearance, from slightly naive to complete innocent to complicit partner in Slappy's classic cartoon tactics, but his idolization of his famous aunt remained constant. His catchphrase is "Spew!", usually said when he sees something disgusting.
  • Skippy Squirrel is Slappy's sweet, cheerful, and adorable nephew and often serves as the voice of reason between the two. They often have different points of views, with Skippy thinking of the safety of his aunt. However, despite his cuteness and sweetness, he has multiple moments (especially in the comics) where he adopts his aunt's violent nature. According to the episode "One Flew Over The Cuckoo Clock," Skippy's teacher's name is Mrs. Munk. In the episode "Bully for Skippy", Skippy deals with a bully at school, thanks to his guidance counselor Ms. Butley. Also, in some episodes, Skippy is often prone to crying, as shown in the episodes "... And Justice For Slappy" (When Slappy yelled at Skippy for no reason, which Walter John Wolf made up), "Bumbie's Mom" (whenever he sees a sad movie)
  • Skippy's personality was somewhat inconsistent from one appearance to another, alternating between the naïve innocence of a prepubescent child and the borderline cynicism of a young teenager. Skippy would regularly switch back and forth between characterizations from short to short, primarily depending on whether his role in the story was an innocent counterpoint to Slappy's crusty elder or as a co-conspirator with his aunt against the story's antagonist(s). Either way, Skippy was generally an energetic youth who eagerly spent time with his beloved aunt, for whom he had more than a little hero-worship as a star of the golden age of animation. Also, as revealed in Gimme a Break, he's a member of the Hair Club for Men.

  • Skippy's personality was somewhat inconsistent from one appearance to another, alternating between the naïve innocence of a prepubescent child and the borderline cynicism of a young teenager. Skippy would regularly switch back and forth between characterizations from short to short, primarily depending on whether his role in the story was an innocent counterpoint to Slappy's crusty elder or as a co-conspirator with his aunt against the story's antagonist(s). Either way, Skippy was generally an energetic youth who eagerly spent time with his beloved aunt, for whom he had more than a little hero-worship as a star of the golden age of animation. Also, as revealed in Gimme a Break, he's a member of the Hair Club for Men. Originally, Slappy Squirrel was billed as the sole star of the Slappy & Skippy shorts, being the only one mentioned in the brief opening sequence and theme song. Later, Skippy was added as co-star for a new opening sequence and expanded theme. Whatever his billing, Skippy was obviously always intended to be a principal character on Animaniacs, appearing in the show's opening credits as well as many sequences involving the main cast of the series. One notable episode featuring Skippy was "Bumbie's Mom", an obvious parody of Bambi, in which Skippy is greatly disturbed after seeing "Bumbie's" Mom shot by hunters in the movie. Slappy then takes him to see the actress who played her, an old friend, to show that she is not really dead. In the finale of the mix-up special, Skippy hasn't appeared as a major character in any of the mix-up episodes, but was seen briefly in the introduction of the mixed-up Slappy Squirrel theme with Dot Warner. Hip Hippo Flavio temporarilly took his role.

There are contradicting beliefs on why Skippy's parents were never shown or referenced. Sherri Stoner, in character as Slappy, said in the Nostalgia Critic Tribute that Skippy's parents were on a trip, occasionally sending pay-checks. However, in the episode "One Flew Over The Cuckoo Clock", when Slappy is temporary unable to look after him, He has lived in a foster home, showing that he had no parents to be sent to.
