* EyelessFace: His glasses give the appearance of eyes, but his melon-like head is basically TheBlank. His eyes have only been seen once, in ''[[Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper The Great Muppet Caper]]'' as the result of a BlindingCameraFlash.



* EyesAlwaysShut: Her original concept drawing actually had ''no'' eyes, but the actual puppet became this.

* EyesAlwaysShut: Her original concept drawing actually had ''no'' eyes, but the actual puppet became this. That said, she's been seen with her eyes open twice - once in her chicken form when a Cluckitus epidemic spread on ''The Muppet Show'' and the other time was in ''Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper'' as the result of a BlindingCameraFlash gag.

* EyelessFace: He has no visible eyes, only bushy eyebrows where eyes should be.

* EyelessFace: He has no visible eyes, only bushy eyebrows where eyes should be. His eyes have only been seen once in ''[[Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper The Great Muppet Caper]]'' as the result of a BlindingCameraFlash gag. It's every bit as unsettling to see as it sounds.

%%* GoldTooth

%%* GoldTooth* GoldTooth: To give him more of a blues look.



* NeverBareheaded: Until the action figure came out in 2002, he was never seen without a hat, often wearing his usual hat when dressed or or playing the role of The Chesire Cat, and wearing a night cap when wearing pajamas (while the rest of the band didn't wear hats). The action figure had a removable hat, revealing that the character has a bald spot. The actual puppet wasn't seen hatless until a late-2000s group photo, and the first actual production to show him without his hat is ''{{Film/The Muppets}}''. In the latter two cases, he's shown at angles where the bald spot can't be seen.

** Later, they made a short celebratory video when the Bohemian Rhapsody parody won a Webby Award. The episode is just Animal calling his mama and excitedly telling her they won a Webby... the punchline being that he only caught her voice mail. The implications are that the second he as much as heard his mother's voice, he completely geeked out with excitement. That is ADORABLE.

*** Despite his, Rizzo is still a core character in Muppet productions and will even have a bigger speaking role in Muppets Most Wanted.
*** That scene? Complaining about how he's been DemotedToExtra.

Imagine Creator/WilliamShatner with double the ego, half the brains, and a pig's snout. Link, star of the ''Pigs In Space'' sketches, considers himself a gifted actor, a brave action star, and irresistable to the lady pigs. Needless to say, he falls short in all of those categories.

''Pigs in Space'''s German-accented science officer, forever the bearer of bad news, and the only crewman on the Swinetrek who takes his job seriously. Outside of this role, Julius' performances are few and far between.

** However, as of the 2015 series, Camilla is seemingly out of the picture and Gonzo is back on the market.



* CloudCuckoolander: Has shades of this in the 2015 series- for example, he believes that the Earth revolves around the Moon, and that's why winter occurs.

Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: At least at first. Of the members of the band he's the least eccentric, and even among the entire cast he's typically the "laid back, normal one." Many of his appearances on the Muppet Show involve him watching and making snide comments as craziness goes on around him. In later series, however, he became somewhat sillier - see CloudCuckooLander.
