Muppet rodent, voiced by Steve Whitmire. First seen in The Great Muppet Caper as one of the bellhop rats. (Kermit: "I could be mistaken, but the bellhops look like rats." Rowlf: "You should see the chambermaids!") Got a name and a pretty good role in The Muppets Take Manhattan, and has since (especially after the deaths of Jim Henson and Richard Hunt) become one of the core Muppets.

Rizzo has a distinct Brooklyn accent and is usually now considered The Great Gonzo's best friend. Rizzo is more than willing to put up with Gonzo's weird stunts in exchange for having someone with whom to share a wacky sense of humor.
