Nat Crotchet is Pops' nephew, whom he plans to train as his replacement in The Muppet Show Comic Book: The Four Seasons part 3: Fall. Nat doesn't mind when Scooter tells him not to get too used to working there, in case the Muppets can find a way to keep Pops from his forced retirement, and Nat has a bit of trouble in his position. At the end, he reveals to the others that he found Pops' actual birth certificate at home, revealing that Pops is actually five years younger (Pops lied about his age to join the army, and after suffering memory loss believed he was the age he told the army he was), and managed to switch it into his office, and that Nat used to be a spy.
