Bobo the Bear
first appeared in the The Muppets Take Manhattan
, but as a different puppet from the current one. He has been in several Muppet films as a major character and others as just a background character. One of his appearances was on the Muppets Tonight
as the security guard, where he had an encounter with Prince
, who at the time was using his symbol moniker as a name. Bobo has a seemingly clever and lovable character. His character in Muppets From Space
was named Rentro.
The character was last seen in an episode of Statler and Waldorf: From the Balcony in a skit where he auditioned for Star Wars: Episode III.
Bobo is performed by Bill Barretta.
