* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible:[[invoked]] On ''The Muppet Show'', his shtick was performing bizarre performance art acts, like demolishing an antique car to the tune of "The Anvil Chorus"... or [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin wrestling a brick.]]

* WasntThatFun: He finds many painful and/or dangerous things entertaining. This makes him a terrible judge of what ''audiences'' would find entertaining.

* TheScrooge: He's usually characterized as tight-fisted, although he lets the Muppet Theater fall behind on their rent regularly.



* TheQuietOne: In many of his appearances, he doesn't speak at all. His scene with Harvey Korman revealed that he has a fussy little voice.

* AscendedExtra: Rizzo started out as an anonymous member of a group of rats, but thanks to Steve Whitmire's performance soon emerged as the central rat character, started getting solo appearances and in the final season of the ''Muppet Show'' began popping up everywhere, usually as a background character and often in skits he had no place in. He was a pivotal supporting character in ''TheMuppetsTakeManhattan''. Then, in ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' he made the jump to main star when writer Jerry Juhl discovered just how well the Gonzo/Rizzo team worked, and since then has either been among the main characters or at least had a notable appearance in every major Muppet production. He also got what was pretty much Scooter's role on ''Series/MuppetsTonight''.

* TheGhost: As noted, at first the mere mention of him was usually enough to cow Kermit into giving in to Scooter or Muppy's demands. After four seasons of this, they finally brought him out as a regular character.
** However, the writers and performers eventually degreed that while Grosse was fun as an offscreen presence, in person he was too abrasive and threatening to be funny. Grosse was quickly DemotedToExtra. To see how they ultimately dealt with him, see below.
