Contender-980116
PERFORMER Richard Hunt
DEBUT 1979

Contender 980116 is a Whatnot interviewed by Louis Kazagger in the "Muppet Sports" sketch on episode 319 of The Muppet Show.

The Muppet marksman claims he won't need luck to win the All-Nation Goldfish-Shooting Contest. His unwavering belief is that his target won't have a chance. When the moment of truth comes, however, Contender 980116 aims his shotgun directly into the fishbowl but misses the goldfish entirely, showing that shooting fish in a barrel isn't quite as easy as the adage suggests.
