 This page is for any Muppets and human movie characters who debuted after The Muppet Show. For characters who debuted on or before the Muppet Show, go here.

Muppets

Clifford

 Kevin Clash

Debut: The Jim Henson Hour

Digit

 Dave Goelz

Debut: The Jim Henson Hour

  • AI Is a Crapshoot
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Was in Jim Henson's original pilot of The Jim Henson Hour, titled Inner Tube TV. Digit was the keyboard player for the all-new band and had a more-robotic voice. Digit is also the only Muppet from said pilot to remain on board when the show was changed to The Jim Henson Hour.
  • Robot Buddy
  • Uncanny Valley
  • The Unexpected: After two decades of absence, he randomly showed up again in the video game Muppets Party Cruise.

Waldo C. Graphic

 Steve Whitmire

Debut: The Jim Henson Hour

Bean Bunny

 Steve Whitmire

Debut: The Tale of Bunny Picnic

The Elvises

 Debut: Muppets Classic Theatre

  • Elvis Impersonator: The Elvises have had many Muppeteers over the years, all of whom count as these. Part of the fun is hearing the subtle differences between the different performers' imitations.
  • Elvis Lives: And there are three of him! Nobody finds this odd.
  • Elvish Presley: In their debut, they were the stars of a rather unconventional telling of The Elves and the Shoemaker
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: They don't really interact with the main cast much. They appear, rock out, and leave.

Walter

 Peter Linz

Debut: The Muppets (2011)

  • Adorkable
  • Ascended Fanboy: The lucky guy gets to meet his idols, help them come back to relevance, and even gets a part in their telethon!
  • Audience Surrogate: As Tough Pigs put it, "(...)Walter is us. I related with his character so much, I practically expected him to say that he runs his own website for Muppet Fans Who Grew Up."
  • Fan Boy: Of the Muppets.
    • Fridge Logic: ... when he is a Muppet himself. Not that he knew that to begin with, anyway.
      • Though part of the reason he likes the Muppets in the first place is because they're the only ones out there like him.
  • Keet: He's very excitable and energetic, especially when fanboying.
  • Hidden Talents: He can whistle, but he didn't think of it as a talent until he was put on the spot and had to do something to fill time.
  • Oblivious Adoption: Averted. The film never even addresses how human Gary and Muppet Walter are brothers.
    • According to Jason Segel, they just decided the audience will go with it, like in The Great Muppet Caper the people just went with the idea of Fozzie and Kermit been identical twin brothers.
  • Original Generation
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: Walter is a brand-new Muppet created for the film, and is described as a plain brown Whatnot. He's not exactly a fan of how generic he is.
  • Stage Fright: So bad he managed to make a Walter-shaped hole in a brick wall when running away.
  • Victorian Novel Disease: Prone to fainting when he gets overexcited or overstimulated, despite being able to withstand an electric fence shocking him. He faints seeing Kermit in the flesh, and after waking up, he's told he was brought into Kermit's house, immediately fainting again (albeit much more briefly).

80's Robot

 Matt Vogel

Debut: The Muppets (2011)

The Moopets

  • Anti-Hero Substitute: To Kermit, Miss Piggy, Janice, Animal, Rowlf and Fozzie.
  • The Cameo: Miss Poogy later shows up imprisoned in the Gulag in Muppets Most Wanted.
  • Face Heel Turn: They decide to work for Tex Richman for revenge. Even after Richman reforms, they still want his money.

Constantine

Human Movie Characters

Doc Hopper

 Charles Durning

Debut: The Muppet Movie

Max

 Austin Pendleton

Debut: The Muppet Movie

Ebenezer Scrooge

  • Anti-Hero: Pretty much the same tropes from the original book can fit him here.

Jim Hawkins

Long John Silver

Gary

Mary

  • Cool Teacher: Her students even simultaneously admit they'll miss her during their two-week Spring Break.
  • Deus Ex Machina: When the Muppet Theater loses power during the telethon, she abruptly appears to repair the fuse box.
  • Foil: Arguably to Miss Piggy. Then "Me Party" shows that the two aren't so different.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Amy Adams, natch.
  • Hot Teacher

Tex Richman

 Chris Cooper

Debut: The Muppets
