Old Tom is a pirate in Muppet Treasure Island. He has a long, uncut beard and wears glasses. He has a background role, but is seen hugging Angel Marie when the pirates discover Flint's treasure. He is defeated when Sweetums throws a log at him.
Old Tom also played a member of the Flying Monkeys motorcycle gang in The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, in which he was performed by Allan Trautman. He later appeared in a Haunted Holidays interstitial on Disney.com (played by Steve Whitmire), "Bohemian Rhapsody", Muppets Most Wanted (on the wall of Gulag 38B), The Muppets episode "Because... Love", The Muppets Take the Bowl, and The Muppets Take the O2.
