Two new additions to the show were ‘Nanny’ and ‘Skeeter’. With striped green socks, pink skirt and purple sweater, Nanny was an early pioneer in the art of never showing a TV character’s face, perhaps because she was horribly disfigured. Skeeter, Scooter’s twin sister, is a character that only exists in the Muppet Babies. She was introduced to be a second female character but then never shows up later on in the Muppet universe as an adult alongside Scooter. What happened? Did she die? Maybe she was just a figment of Scooter’s imagination?
The show’s humour relied heavily on incorporating footage from live action film and television productions, most often Star Wars, but clips from Henson’s own The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, and Labyrinth also surfaced. Live-action cameo appearances included Whoopi Goldberg and Tom Selleck, amongst others. It is a little lightweight on the usual anarchic Muppet’s fun, but like all Jim Henson productions it is very sweet.
