Animal (Muppet)

Animal is a Muppet on the television show Muppet Show and the later Muppets Tonight, as well as all the Muppet movies.

Animal is the drummer for Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. He may have been "inspired" by the antics of Keith Moon of The Who. During performances, Animal is usually chained to the drum set, as his musical outbursts are extremely violent. He opts to wear football shoulder pads instead of a shirt (when he isn't in his maroon band uniform). He usually speaks in grunts and monosyllables, and has a violent temper. Animal bowls overhand.

In the movie The Great Muppet Caper, it is revealed that Animal has a passion for impressionist paintings, especially those of Renoir.
