Slips is an easy-going, street-talking green tree python. He is an underachiever and excessive daydreamer who's gullibility allows him to believe anything he hears, which makes him a constant source of misinformation. As a snake he has no limbs, yet wears a tee-shirt. He is usually seen with his best friend Windsor Gorilla.
Slips is voiced by Rick Gomez.
Slips is best friends with Windsor and often accompanies him, when separate from the pack. Opposites attract in this case, given Slips' dim-witted, but streetwise attitude and Windsor's awkward, but intellectual personality. Both of their weaknesses are complimented by the other's strength. So, when substituting for each other's shortcomings with their own talented traits, together, they make an unstoppable pair.
In "Sidekicked", we delved more into their friendship, seeing how they are not equals to each other. Slips is the lackey to Windsor, as the leader, and Windsor will boss Slips around and even objectify him, using him as a backscratcher or a flyswatter, putting Slips' thin and elongated stature to good use. Unlike the leader/lackey example provided by Lupe and Ingrid in the same episode, Slips and Windsor tend to hold far less, if not, no emotional hostility toward each other, with Slips never complaining about his substandard treatment and Windsor never whining about Slips' incompetence.
Slips Python brings about very little information about his backstory. Before becoming a student at Charles Darwin Middle School, little to nothing is known about him. All that's known is that he was born to two unnamed parents, following his older sister and possibly an older brother. He lives in the Zoo Aquarium of Glendale, California, thought his exhibit has never been shown, but it's safe to say, he was born and raised there, and he's lived there his entire life. It's also notable that in "Ain't Too Proud to Egg", Slips took care of an egg, by wrapping around it and basking under a heating lamp, emulating a desert-like environment, implying that his mother did the same to him when he was still in his egg. This also hints that his exhibit may be a desert environment.
When enrolling at Charles Darwin Middle School, Slips became best friends with his classmate, Windsor Gorilla, and eventually, he and Windsor made connections with Jake, Lupe, and Ingrid. Lastly, Adam Lyon was transferred to the school, adding him to the friend group, and fully forming what is now known as "The Pack", of which Slips is the tertiary member.
Slips shed his skin for the first time in "The Sheds", which to snakes, can be best expressed as their equivalent of puberty, with the only difference being that it happens multiple times. Apparently, his parents never told him about shedding, so when Slips experienced it for the first time, he was very confused. Slips scratched himself silly, as the itching of his old layer of skin was unbearable. The shedding process was equally foreign to other students. To make matters worse, other students started going through their forms of puperty. Lupe started molting, Janet Musk Ox starting losing her fur, etc. This got them thinking that Slips had a horrible disease, which they unofficially titled "The KKKKKKCCCHHHHK!"
Slips briefly became a pariah and the entire school went full on barbaric, chasing him down like an angry mob and planning to burn him at the stake, before Principal Pixiefrog came in to stop the madness and give them an explanation, as to what was going on with Slips, and the rest of them. He presented them with the educational film, "It's Only Natural", which taught Slips and everyone else about how shedding his skin is natural, and how Slips just needs to embrace it. Embrace it he did, as Slips tore right out of his skin and finally broke free, entering his beautiful new layer of skin, underneath.
Since then, Slips has been completely fine with shedding his skin, as he's done so with ease in future episodes. In "Cuddlemuffins", Slips shed his skin by technicality, when Adam went berserk with a razor and shaved his current layer of skin off, during it's prime. This revealed a sickly, undeveloped, premature layer of skin, still in the middle of growing. His new skin had grown in, by the events of the next episode. In "Sidekicked", Slips was ready to shed his next layer of skin, but said he could not do so, without Windsor using him as a backscratcher. This implies that Slips is unable to shed his skin independently, despite having done just that, earlier in "The Sheds". This also lets us know that Slips has shed a number of previous skin layers, prior to this episode, if he's used to Windor helping him do so, "backscratcher style". Slips was able to fully master shedding his own skin, by the events of "Don't Noc It 'Til You Try It", when he shed his own skin in the middle of the night, while lost in night school. Obviously, Windsor could not have helped him, as he did this while lost, and while Windsor and the rest of The Pack was looking for him. In "Save the Drama for Your Llama", Slips had one of his former layers of skin, hanging in his locker. Likely, it was his first layer of skin, kept there for sentimental purposes.
