Skatoony (Shown as SKAToonY) is a British children's competition show, pitting live-acted kids against toons, which airs on Cartoon Network in the UK. It is based around two hosts named 'Chudd Chudders' (voiced by Rupert Degas) and 'The Earl' (voiced by Lewis MacLeod). Whenever a contestant leaves, the hosts sing "You're Outta Here!"

History

Skatoony began, not as a TV show, but as a microsite on the Cartoon Network UK website. 2006 was the first Skatoony full length TV show. However a few phone-in shows such as Skatoony Quizmas, Ready Steady Skatoony and Skatoony Truckatoony existed before as a sort of continuity during school holidays. These phone-in shows ended in 2005. Owing to the success of the first two series of Skatoony, Turner Broadcasting have commissioned a third series of the show, to launch on Cartoon Network (UK) in November 2008.

Characters

Chudd Chudders The main host of the show, Chudd is a small, bespectacled man. He often tries to keep control of the quiz, despite the best efforts of those around him. At the beginning of every show, he asks the audience "Has anyone seen my glasses?" - the joke being that he is wearing them.

The Earl An apparent pastiche of Tom Jones, The Earl is the co-host, explaining the rules of certain rounds, singing the "You're Outta Here!" and giving the finalists the choice between extra points or extra time in Earl's Halfway Deal. Earl is fiercely loyal to Chudd, and will often help him out.

Tony Eagle Eyes The boss of Skatoony, Tony Eagle Eyes is a penny-pinching bully who is always on the lookout for the chance to make even more money. For some reason, he always holds a sausage as if he is smoking it.

Hoo A giant gorilla, Hoo usually only appears in the round "Hoo Flung Dung", where he thows his own droppings at a canvas whilst spouting phrases about his artistic endeavours. However, on occasion he will pop in, often to cause a ruckus.

T-Bone, Scabz and Fibbs, The Skeleton Crew Three anthropomorphic skeletons, who only speak "street" and wear bling (except for Fibbs, who wears a flat cap).

'Atilla the Hun He smashes anything and everything.

Hiddley Diddley Dee Chudd's rival, always thinking of cunning schemes to steal Chudd's job as host of Skatoony.

Guts Glory A superhero who is based on superman wasp boy is his sidekick. His weakness is all-you-can-eat buffets

Wasp Boy A Wasp like boy who is smarter than guts glory and his sidekick. His weakness is being hit with a really big newspaper

BradZilla A huge green dino-shaped creature who is always hungry, he says that when he gets nervous he gets hungry.

Tonys Grandma An old lady who is tony's grandma, she has a walking stick and doesn't like rudeness on TV.
