This exclusive figure was released exclusively to www.omgcnfo.com for the Jim Henson's Muppets action figure line.

Uncle Deadly first appeared on The Muppet Show. As an action figure, Uncle Deadly appears in three variations, a standard version, a black and white (glow in the dark) version, and a Steppin' Out version. Each comes with a differently painted Muppet Ghost and Muppet Skull pack-in.

Uncle Deadly moves his hips the same way as Statler and Waldorf, which means his tail had to be glued to his cape instead of attached to his body.

The clear display base has an included rod that sticks into it and the ghost making it appear to be floating.

The skull's name is Yorick. He appeared on the Muppet Show episode 418 in a Hamlet scene: "Alas, poor Yorick, I knew thee well!" The inclusion of the skull is an appropriate choice; Uncle Deadly mentions being famous for his interpretation of Hamlet in Episode 121.

Besides a brief scene in episode 304 of The Muppet Show, Uncle Deadly never had legs. In this scene, the camera simply cuts to a closeup of a pair of black shoes and trousers. The design of Uncle Deadly's legs and feet comes from a comic strip in The Muppet Show Annual 1979. This is also the only source that reveals his tail.
