Miss Kitty puppet at the Center for Puppetry Arts

"Miss Kitty" is a purple monster who first appeared as a Frackle with a match in The Great Santa Claus Switch, performed by Richard Hunt. When he appeared on The Muppet Show, his nose was changed from green to blue, and his eyes were enlarged.

The character was named during his first appearance on The Muppet Show, in the "Cowboy Time" sketch on episode 101. As Rowlf walked through the saloon, he greeted the monster as "Miss Kitty," in a gag reference to saloon owner Miss Kitty Russell from the radio and television Western series Gunsmoke.

Despite the joke, the character has a male voice and usually has male characteristics. However, like other utility Muppets and background characters, gender can change according to the needs of the sketch; for example, in a wig, Miss Kitty is used as the female love interest of the "All of Me" singer on episode 108.

Like many Muppet Monsters, Miss Kitty had no consistent performer. His known performers include:

The Miss Kitty puppet was also reworked for Thudge McGerk in episode 119 (where the character also appears, in unaltered form, in At the Dance and the closing song "You've Got a Friend").

The Miss Kitty puppet is part of the Center for Puppetry Arts collection and was on display during 2020.
