The Cake Collective presents…Cakes from the Dwarf.
Happy 30th Birthday Red Dwarf,here’s my contribution to the collaboration.
The skutters are motorized service and maintenance robots that perform menial tasks around Red Dwarf (although they have a better union than Z shift), such as sweeping the cinema floors after a movie, or painting the corridor walls. The skutters are unable to speak but can usually make their feelings clear, their hands are particularly well designed for “flipping the bird”, most frequently at Rimmer. Their behavior is rather more human-like than might be expected for such crudely designed robots; they play cowboys-and-Indians, enjoy watching films, are highly emotional and appear to be somewhat unstable and malfunctional, presumably as a result of 3 million years of continuous operation.
