Dr. Van Neuter also appeared as a villainous neurosurgeon in Muppets from Space and was also one of the Muppets who guest starred on Family Feud in 2001. He also appeared at MuppetFest, apparently by accident, and Brian Henson performed him there, having a conversation with Dr. Bunsen Honeydew.
Dr. Van Neuter's hands were often performed by Bill Barretta. His name is a reference to Phil Vannatter, a police detective involved in the O. J. Simpson trial. His signature entrance phrase ("A-E-I-O-YOU!") was suggested by Barretta, as Henson couldn't think of a diabolical laugh to give the character.
