Skittles is a small penguin with a white bow on her head. She has big eyes, a small beak and "hair" on the back of her head.
When Scrooge McDuck, Launchpad McQuack, Huey, Dewey and Louie are imprisoned in Antarctica by a penguin army, Webby and Mrs. Beakley meet up with Skittles. She agrees to help them break their friends out when Webby gives her a scarf, which she loves because it has so many colors, as everything around her is white snow and ice.
She helps Webby get around the prison by disguising her as a penguin and the two get their friends out with help from a powerful tuning fork.
- Her name may be a parody to a brand of fruit-flavored sweets of the same name, given her kind nature.
