Zeke
PERFORMER various
DEBUT 1977
DESIGN Jim Henson designer

Zeke is the banjo player for Lubbock Lou and His Jughuggers. He has shaggy yellow hair, a shaggy yellow beard, bead eyes that can be faintly seen behind his round-lensed sunglasses.

Although the other jugband members debuted in Episode 208, Zeke did not appear until Episode 212. In seasons 4 and 5, Zeke was seen less often with the jug-band, but instead frequently backed up Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, usually on the marimba.

Zeke can be seen without his sunglasses, and more traditional Muppet eyes, in Rocky Mountain Holiday with John Denver and The Muppets. He also appeared in the "Rainbow Connection Finale" of The Muppet Movie and as one of the residents of the Happiness Hotel in The Great Muppet Caper.

Zeke has been performed at various points by Jim Henson (in early Muppet Show appearances, with speaking appearances in episodes 401 and 408, and in Rocky Mountain Holiday), and Steve Whitmire (during seasons 4-5 of The Muppet Show).
