Cousin Skeeter was a live-action television series that aired on Nickelodeon between 1998 and 2001. The show had a unique hook of using a puppet as its main protagonist while the rest of the cast was played by traditional actors. The fact that Cousin Skeeter is played by a puppet is never addressed in the series. However, a second puppet-based character was added to the show at the start of season two.

Plot

The show begins after Bobby, the new kid at school, receives word that his cousin will be living with his family to tutor him through summer school. Once Skeeter arrives, he begins to assist Bobby in his daily life and the problems that arise. However, Skeeter's attitude and carelessness tend to only make the situation worse. Skeeter is portrayed as a popular guy with connections to big-name celebrities such as Shaquille O'Neal, resulting in cameos and shout-outs.[1] Bordering on the fact that Skeeter is played by a puppet, the show uses his height as a running gag.

Original airing

Cousin Skeeter premiered on September 1, 1998, at 8:30 PM (EST) on Nickelodeon's SNICK programming block, where further new episodes of the series would premiere. Re-runs of the series would air on Nickelodeon's Nickel-O-Zone programming block on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30 PM (EST).[2] The series received a lukewarm reception, with many dismissing the use of the puppet. Variety magazine found the titular character to be a stereotype.[3]

Availability

Since Cousin Skeeter's cancellation in 2001, the series has not been re-aired on television. Episodes can be found on Youtube and Dailymotion, but these are few in number. The show has never had any home media releases, and Nickelodeon has shown no interest in doing so in foreseeable future.

The Feminine Ms. Skeet... oh, lord. I remember watching this show and used to tape Nickel O Zone back in the day. Considering my parents are packrats, I may just be able to dig them up.
