Skidoo is an album by Harry Nilsson. It is the original soundtrack recording for the 1968 Otto Preminger film Skidoo, arranged and conducted by George Tipton and released by RCA Records.

Track 1, "The Cast and Crew", was used at the close of the film, and consists of Nilsson putting the entire end credits (key grip, Paramount logo, and copyright notice and all) to music and singing them.

Preminger gave Nilsson a cameo role in the film as a prison guard. The album's liner notes are by famous radio disc jockey and voice artist Gary Owens.
