The two Muppets
who have cameos in nearly every Muppet
production involving Kermit
were named after two hotels
of the same names in New York City
. They are always there to add their witty commentary
to what's going on, and are beloved by Muppet
fans everywhere for their heckling
. Below are a few of their heckles over the years:

seven years in advance?

about this program
