One of Jim Henson's first live-hand Muppets, Omar was utilized in a sketch performed at the US World Fair, held in Hamburg, Germany in 1961, where he plays a chef who uses nonsense ingredients for a recipe that ends in an explosion. Footage of this sketch was restored from the Henson Archives and shown at Museum of the Moving Image in May 2016.
