Skeeter is the current owner and bartender of Skeeter's Wine Bar and a prominent townsperson. He is first seen in "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut" and first speaks in "Sexual Harassment Panda". He is often seen at his bar or leading protests.
He is often portrayed as a stereotypical redneck with a strong southern accent, and often spouses conservative activist political viewpoints, such as supporting the War in Iraq and speaking out against homosexuality, though his viewpoints may vary based on the episode.
BackgroundThough he had previously appeared in background sequences on occasion, Skeeter was first introduced in "Sexual Harassment Panda" as a patron at the then-unnamed town Bar. He and his two friends were depicted harassing customers with Skeeter's catchphrase, "we don't take kindly to (group of people) around here", which continues to occasionally be used. He would reappear at the bar in "Cripple Fight".
The episode "Free Hat" would establish his secondary usage as a regular leader of mobs and protests, when he would help the boys by leading the 'free Hat McCullough' movement, and Skeeter would continue to play this role, most notably in "I'm a Little Bit Country", where he supports the Iraq War and sings against Randy, who is against the war, and later in "Follow That Egg!" as one of many anti-gay activists in Denver, as well as parts of larger protests in epsiodes such as "Goobacks" and "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce".
Skeeter was revealed to serve on the City Council in "Die Hippie, Die" and reappeared with them in "Night of the Living Homeless". He is first seen as one of Randy Marsh's friends and regular drinking buddies in Season 11's "More Crap".
Skeeter was seen in the Season 13 episode, "Margaritaville" as a member of economic council in the Community Center, and in the same season, the previously unamed bar was renamed to Skeeter's Bar and Cocktails, though it would be several years until it would be confirmed that Skeeter had indeed become the bar's new owner, and it was also revealed he was taking anger management classes.
He was reduced to cameo appearances for six seasons, until Season Nineteen, when his business became one of many sweeped up in the the changes in the town. He appears to have a friendship with Tuong Lu Kim, who praises Skeeter's Bar in a promotional video and is eager to tell him about the defeat of restaurant reviewers. Skeeter made multiple short appearances tending to a re-designed bar afterwards.
AppearanceSkeeter is most recognized by his bright pink shirt with pockets and black pants. He has curly orange hair and wears black shoes. He bares a resemblance to Thomas Tucker, which has been the subject of speculation.
Skeeter has an abrasive, short-tempered personality and is often depicted as crude and socially ignorant. He often reacts to changes in the town with concern and an expectation of negative effects on him or other townsfolk. He often projects a very masculine and aggressive image but many of his reactions seem to stem from fears of negative reprecussions. In his spare time he seems to enjoy stereotypical redneck hobbies like watching Cock Magic, or drinking, and in recent episodes, has exhibited a genuine knowledge of alcohol and tending his bar.
Skeeter, along with Darryl Weathers, seem to be among the leaders of the town's rednecks and conservatives, and often lead their protests against local issues, such as fighting to free Hat McCullough. In many earlier episodes, such as "Cripple Fight" and "Follow That Egg!", Skeeter was depicted as one of the town's more homophobic residents, exhibiting concern about Big Gay Al and gay marriage, but his views on the issue appear to have relaxes as of "Tweek x Craig". Despite his conservative views often aligning against the federal government, he is a member of the City Council and therefore an important member of the town's own local government.
He has frequently been seen at the town Bar since his first speaking appearance, often accompanied by two other redneck friends in older episodes, where he often proclaims "we don't take kindly to (group of people) around here", to which the blonde bartender often relaxed his concerns by assuring him nobody was being hurt. Since Season Nineteen, Skeeter has worked the tap at his own bar and has been depicted fulfilling orders and been less abrasive and conservative, though he still uses his catchphrase on occasion.
