Skatoony is a children's competition show 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 was not originally a TV show but instead originated 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.

Plot

Skatoony is a toon vs children quiz show that offers prizes to the winners. Chudd Chudders and The Earl are the main cartoon characters in the show, and the have appeared in other questionairre adverts on the cartoon network held all the way in Holland/The Netherlands, asking viewers in English some unscrambling questions and more. The current prize to be won is a Nintendo Wii, since last time only low price small gizmos were offered as prizes, Video Ipod and a Sony PSP, but now, a bigger and better console it offered as a prize, and it should stay the same one, since a Sony PS3 will be far to expensive to win just in a quiz, although an Xbox 360/Xbox might be held at some stage. Also another character the show's fictional money making producer and big boss Tony Eagle Eyes makes appearances, likes sausages, hates Chudders and calls him Chubbers.
