DEBUT 1977

A Screaming Thing, as described by Statler, is featured in episode 201 of The Muppet Show. The creature is green with pink feathers and limbs, and possesses three legs which rotate like a pinwheel.

The Thing, who is mentally frazzled despite his calm outward demeanor, exhausts himself singing "The Windmills of Your Mind" early in the show. He then runs off the balcony where Statler and Waldorf sit, injuring himself. He is later carried offstage by some pigs and treated in the Veterinarian's Hospital sketch. During the sketch, the Screaming Thing remarks that it has two feet in Cincinnati.

He later appeared in the finale of The Muppet Movie, where he can be spotted between Zeke and Paul Revere.
