Caricatures of film critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel appeared in the Summer 1988 issue of Muppet Magazine. The two feature in the Mondo Muppet section, in a salute to the movies. Paired with a rat, and stocked up on munchies, they trade jokes about such cinema classics as The Empire Strikes Back, Superman, The Wizard of Oz and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
