Skip, A.K.A. Experiment 089, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba. He is designed to skip a person's life by one decade when they press the button on his head; he also has a reverse setting that will return the person back to the present day. His one true place is as an amusement park ride showing people what it would be like in the future. He is voiced by Jeff Bennett.
He was originally designed to skip time by ten minutes (because Jumba was too lazy to wait for his microwave to reheat his leftovers), but there was an error in his program; when the button on 089's head was pressed, he instead skipped ten years of a person's life.
Lilo used him to jump ahead 10 years and become a teenager, then 20 years later to become a full-fledged adult. However, since Lilo and Stitch were gone for 20 years, no one was there to catch experiments except Gantu. So 20 years later, Hämsterviel ruled Earth.
Rather than being a troublesome experiment, Skip is rather wobbly and clumsy and enjoys exploring his surroundings. He is also surprisingly happy-go-lucky and easygoing, often smiling and not caring about being confined. Unlike most of his cousins, he doesn't cause trouble on purpose, but tends to cause unforeseen consequences when someone activates his powers. He seems slightly dazed at times, not paying attention to what others are saying and not being observant of his surroundings.
Skip is a purple hourglass-shaped experiment with a large head with small white eyes with black pupils, two green dots on his head that serve as buttons, a red nose and a wide mouth with a plump body. He always wobbles when he walks.
Each time someone presses the button on Skip's head, Skip and anyone near him will be transported ten years into the future. While those transported will be missing during the ten-year period, they will also age ten years with each "skip". Skip also has a reverse setting that sends him and his user back to the present day.
Skip is virtually harmless.
- Skip is one of the rare experiments to have sclerae and pupils instead of solid black eyes, the others being Mr. Stenchy, Mrs. Sickly, Clink and Nosox.
- Skip's pod color is white.
- Skip is described by the experiment computer screen as, "Experiment 089. Primary function: Time skipper".
- Skip is one of the few experiments to not appear in the group photo at the end of Leroy & Stitch.
