9 Lesser-Known Muppets You’ll See In The New Movie

Wednesday, November 23 by

Marvin Suggs

This Muppet musician wasn’t cool enough for the main Muppet Show Band, Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem. Marvin’s main schtick was playing an instrument known as the muppaphone, which was apparently made up of tiny living Muppets he’d smash like a xylophone, which is kind of sickening, when you think about it. Don’t think about it.

Bobo the Bear

Bobo the Bear was a mainstay on the TV series Muppets Tonight, and generally filled the role of security guard to the Muppets. It’s unclear if he performs that function in the new film, but if he does, I hope he gets to taser Rizzo the Rat. I hate that Muppet.

Beaurgard

Beaurgard was the featured janitor on The Muppet Show. He had a small appearance in The Great Muppet Caper, but since then has been pretty low-profile. Whether he’ll ever get to tell us which Muppet Show celebrity guest stars clogged their dressing room toilets remains to be seen. I’m looking in your direction, Linda Ronstadt.
