Skid and Pump are a duo of small children in Halloween costumes. Skid wears a skeleton costume consisting of a black outfit with white lines and circles representing bones and a skull head mask with black markings around the mouth. Pump wears a pumpkin man costume consisting of a black suit with a white shirt underneath, white gloves and a pumpkin head mask.
The pair work in tandem with Skid resting atop Pump's head. The two share a microphone, though Pump holds it in his left hand by default. They do the Spooky Dance whenever they are not singing.
Skid and Pump originate from the Spooky Month web series created by Sr Pelo, a series of annual Halloween-themed videos that started in October of 2018. They are known for their love for the Spooky Month (regardless of what month it actually is) and their adventures in their hometown that lead to unintentional trouble and good-natured chaos, along with their famous dance move known as the "Spooky Dance."
Deriving from the Spooky Month series, Skid and Pump are rather childish and gullible. They love Spooky Month so much that they wear their costumes year-round and constantly spread the word of it around. Their fun-having attitudes have risked them being kidnapped a couple of times and led to them encountering many shady people around town without a thought to their own safety. Their highly accepting behavior persists in Friday Night Funkin' when a certain lemon-headed being tricks them for his own gain.
Skid and Pump are celebrating the Spooky Month as they usually do when they come across Girlfriend's parents' house and a mysterious creature who requests that they bring him a special "treat." Once there, the duo ask Girlfriend to be their "treat," and challenge Boyfriend to win her over. It's later revealed that the figure that tricked Skid and Pump into attempting to capture Girlfriend was Monster. He wanted to devour Girlfriend as his "treat" and personally steps up to challenge Boyfriend after Skid and Pump are defeated.
- In addition to having them included in the game, Skid and Pump's vocals were also provided by Sr Pelo.
- Skid and Pump both have slightly different details compared to their appearance in their series:
- Skid's mouth markings depicts 2 pairs of lines located near both ends of his mouth rather than one pair near both ends and 2 pairs around the center.
- Pump lacks the square tooth outline on his pumpkin head mask, and instead being depicted with fang outlines around the upper ends of his mouth. The stem on top of his pumpkin head mask also resembles more like a realistic pumpkin stem, while the stem for his original design points upward and is shaped like a cylinder. The mask itself also resembles more of a cloud, with it having 6 lumps in total, one on top, two on the left, two on the right, and one on the bottom. His original design only had 4 lumps, one on the top, one on the left, one on the right, and one on the bottom, resulting in his mask to resemble an actual pumpkin.
- Skid and Pump's week used to be the shortest in the game with only 2 tracks. This was due to the week's third track Monster being cut from the game due to mapping issues. This left Skid and Pump's week a track short up until update 0.2.8, which added the unused track into the game and finally turned Week 2 into a full week.
- According to PhantomArcade, the game's animator and writer, stated on a Twitch stream that Week 2 happens after the defeat of Mommy Mearest in Week 4.
- Boyfriend has appeared in Skid and Pump's series, making a brief cameo in Spooky Month - Unwanted Guest as a plushie inside a store.
- The kids were originally named Skidd and Pumpy, but their names were later changed/simplified to Skid and Pump when "Spooky Month - The Stars" was released.
