Muppet versions of two of the traditional Punch and Judy puppets were created for the last season of The Muppet Show. They are literal hand puppets manipulated by other characters: a Mr. Punch figure, with no apparent moving parts, and a more lively crocodile, with a working mouth.
They are first seen in episode 508 where Beauregard performed the puppets in the episode's UK spot. Kermit seems interested in the puppets, and unintentionally ignores Piggy, causing her to perform her signature karate chop on him.
