About the Investigation

Skeeter is missing! On “Muppet Babies,” Skeeter was seen with baby versions of Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Rowlf, Animal, Gonzo the Great, and her twin brother Scooter. All of them grew up to appear on Muppet shows and movies as adults…except Skeeter. On Skeeterial: A Muppet Babies Investigation, Matt Manser and Eileen Mary O’Connell (with the help of special guests) try to answer the question, what happened to Skeeter? Is she okay? Was she killed? We’ll watch every episode of the show to search for answers.

WHERE. IS. SKEETER!? After watching five episodes, Matt Manser and Eileen Mary O’Connell STILL have no idea where Scooter’s twin sister Skeeter is, and why she’s never seen as an adult in any of the other Muppet movies or TV shows. And thus the journey continues!

This week, Matt and Eileen are joined by Joan Ford, author of “Killing It” and writer for Nerdist.com. But could the “It” that’s been killed be Skeeter!? The three of them watched episode 6 of ‘Muppet Babies’ titled “The Case of the Missing Chicken.” Along the way they discussed Muppet reproduction, the logistics of Gonzo’s nose, and maybe, JUST MAYBE, where Skeeter could be.
