Lew Zealand, with some of his fish.

Lew Zealand’s act involves boomerang fish. He throws them away and they come back to him. He has appeared in all of the Muppet movies except Kermit's Swamp Years.

Lew's first appearance was in episode 310 of The Muppet Show, where his timely boomerang fish throwing saved Kermit from being tricked into a real marriage during Miss Piggy's "wedding sketch."

Lew Zealand was meant to only appear in one episode, and he was made from a Whatnot. However, after that, a more permanent puppet was built and Lew Zealand became a regular character.[1]

Aside from his boomerang fish act, Lew supplied the Muppets with paper towels in The Great Muppet Caper, played one of the merry men in the Muppets production of Robin Hood, and told Leslie Uggams how to be a great boomerang fish thrower.
