Esther is an occasional Whatnot old lady who has appeared periodically since the 1990s but was named during her 2020 appearance in the Muppets Now episode "Socialized" (a speaking role performed by Julianne Buescher).

The puppet first appeared as Betsy Ross in a 1993 Muppet Meeting Film, and the next year as a patron of The Muppet Theatre in the opening titles and framing sequences of Muppet Classic Theater.

She later appeared as a senior citizen Whatnot during The Muppet Telethon opening theme in 2011's The Muppets.

She appeared again, in her spot as one of the chorus girls during the different countries' Muppet Show opening themes, in Muppets Most Wanted in 2014.
