Skeletor Peekaboo refers a series of four-panel exploitables featuring two reaction images of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe character Skeletor. Similar to Drakeposting, in the top panels, an image of Skeletor with his hands over his eyes is juxtaposed against something the meme's author disapproves of. Underneath, in the bottom two panels, an image of Skeletor smiling while holding the alien puppy Relay is juxtaposed next to a picture of something the author likes.
The images of Skeletor comes from He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special, a Christmas television special based on the animated television series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and its spin-off She-Ra: Princess of Power, which aired on December 25th, 1985. In the special, Skeletor kidnaps two children and an alien puppy named Relay. When the Skeletor saves the children from the dangert, they call him "wonderful" and he smiles (shown below, left). Minutes later, when he saves the children again, Skeletor puts his hands to face and says, "I don't think I feel well."
While the images have been used as reaction images and for other references in the past on Twitter  and Tumblr,  it's first occurrence as a four-panel exploitable was posted on October 4th, 2017 on the subreddits /r/dankmemes and /r/MemeEconomy. That day, Redditor gillmcil posted the format next to the templates for Drakeposting and, in a meta joke, itself. The post (shown below) received more than 2,100 points (97% upvoted) on /r/dankmemes and 300 points (96% upvoted on /r/MemeEconomy.
Shortly after the format was posted, other members of /r/dankmemes began posting variations. The format led to quite a number of examples appearing over the next 24 hours.
