Trivia

Puppeteer Helena Smee had to apply fresh slime to skekLach in-between takes, and often evoked the disgust of the rest of the crew by getting it accidentally smeared in her hair or dress. See more »

Skeksis need not review.
2 September 2019 | by georgiagirl-93620See all my reviews

To start the negative reviews are by people who obviously didn't see the movie, don't appreciate old school puppetry of Jim Henson and more likely skeksis. This is my childhood and even though now I'm in my 30s I'm still just as creeped out by the skeksis and their voices. The puppeteers are awesome and gives a true throwback and keeps Jim Henson very much alive for the show. I love it.
