DEBUT 1996

Taylor the Turkey appears in a Tales from the Vet segment in episode 102 of Muppets Tonight. Dr. Phil van Neuter begins the segment by announcing that Taylor loves Thanksgiving. Taylor is seen sitting in a roasting pan, enjoying what he believes is his sauna.

The puppet was recycled from The Christmas Turkey from A Muppet Family Christmas, but with a bare body and different performer. The puppet also appeared in The Muppet Christmas Carol as a generic gobbling turkey, in Mopatop's Shop as Mr. Warble, and in the online music video for "Bohemian Rhapsody."
