Timmy Monster appeared on The Muppet Show, and was performed at various times by Steve Whitmire, Dave Goelz, and Jim Henson.

Timmy is a full-bodied blue-green monster. He first appeared in the background during the opening of episode 117, and later joined Ben Vereen in the closing number, "Pure Imagination."

In episode 117, certain publicity photos, and the cover of the first Muppet Show album, Timmy had small green hands and feet, eyes without eyelids, and what appear to be goggles or antennae over his eyes. From the second season onward, he lost his eye antennae and gained eyelids, green hair, a nose, and big feet matching the color of his fur. Later in the second season, his hands were also changed to match the color of his fur, he lost his hair, gained teeth and a tail, a bigger nose, and his eyes and eyelids changed.

The only time Timmy was called by name was in episode 423, in which he stretched a pair of too-small shoes for Miss Piggy. Steve Whitmire performed him in this scene. Betsy Baytos performed Timmy in Episode 504.

In the recreation of "The Muppet Show Theme" for the telethon opening, as seen in The Muppets, Timmy is the only one in the group of featured full-bodied monsters that is not present. According to The Muppets Character Encyclopedia, Timmy has retired from show business and runs an organic bakery called "Timmy's Treats." In 2014, Timmy appeared in animated form as an enemy in the video game, The Muppets Movie Adventures.
