Big V
PERFORMER various
DEBUT 1964

Big V is a long-nosed Muppet monster who ate Kermit in "The Glow-Worm" sketch, performed on various variety shows in the 1960s. This sketch was performed again in The Muppet Show, but with Gorgon Heap taking the role of the monster. As mentioned in Sam and Friends: The Story of Jim Henson's First Television Show, his full name is "Big Vomit Monster."

Big V made a smattering of appearances in other late 1960s and early 1970s Henson projects. In many of the appearances unrelated to the "Glow-Worm" sketch, his nose was truncated.

A new version of the puppet was built in 2023 for the Jim Henson Company's Puppet Up! shows, wherein they re-enact the classic "Glow-Worm" routine.
