With enough crazy antics to keep your mind spinning, there’s no wonder that these are 4 Muppets characters you know by face but not by name. Get reacquainted with these supporting characters that make some serious first, second and fifteenth impressions.
Even without that overbearing smell of a fish-processing factory, Lew Zealand stands out from the crowd. Spiky hair, a clown red nose, one heckuva mustache and a Victorian era collar make Lew a Muppet fact you can never forget. Sure he threw boomerang fish, which in regular society would set him apart but it’s Lew’s face coupled with that crazy outfit that truly makes him stand out in the goofy ensemble cast of “The Muppet Show”. Make sure to check out his fish-throwing act as he turns Leslie Uggams into his involuntary sideshow assistant in season three.
With a beard, pasty complexion and a general ambiance that feels like he just woke up from another night under a dumpster, Crazy Harry is instantly recognizable. Even if he won some sort of Muppet makeover, this is a Muppet character you’d never forget as he has quite the penchant for literally blowing everything up. It’s wildly surprising that he isn’t known as “Three Finger Harry” or “Recently Deceased Harry” but clearly he’s a crafty demolitions expert that knows how to dodge shrapnel. Crazy Harry’s explosive accompaniment during Chanson D’Amour in the Rich Little episode of season two of “The Muppet Show” is one for the books.
