* CatchPhrase: "I'm Chip. The I'm the IT guy."" * TheFriendNobodyLikes: In the 2015 show, he's treated as this due to his obscurity and weirdness, havin been pranked at least once via email. He doesn't mind.

Added DiffLines:
* CatchPhrase: "I'm Chip. The IT guy."PlayfulHacker: He often invades the Internet accounts of other cast members; not for bad intentions, but because he doesn't have a sense of privacy.

Added DiffLines:
* CatchPhrase: "I'm Chip. The IT guy."SelfDeprecation: Given how he's portrayed in the 2015 show, it's clear that he's meant to be this for Bill Prady.

Removing word cruft
* AscendedExtra: In ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'', she was basically TheChick of Rizzo's group of rats, and though she's definitely the non-Rizzo rat to make the most appearances in productions afterwards, she didn't appear very often and usually only for cameos. In [[Series/TheMuppets the 2015 show]] she has become a regular character as Kermit's secretary.

* RememberTheNewGuy: An odd case; he's not actually a new Muppet, but his obscurity means he's treated as one in the 2015 show. He has to introduce himself to just about every other cast member because he's just that unknown.

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's one of the rare Muppets not to have any mouth where the puppeteer's hand can operate from, he's basically all remote-controlled by someone off-screen. If he were to appear in any other movie, audiences wouldn't think of him as a Muppet at all.

* AntiHero: Pretty much the same tropes from the original book can fit him here.

* SassySecretary: In [[Series/TheMuppets the 2015 show]]. With her trademark Brooklyn accent, it was probably inevitable.

!!Yolanda Rat ->Karen Prell/Julianne Buescher ->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'' (1984) Rizzo's on-again-off-again girlfriend, introduced as one of the rat crowd in ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'' and appearing sporadically in Muppet productions ever since. * AscendedExtra: In ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'', she was basically TheChick of Rizzo's group of rats, and though she's definitely the non-Rizzo rat to make the most appearances in productions afterwards, she didn't appear very often and usually only for cameos. In [[Series/TheMuppets the 2015 show]] she has become a regular character as Kermit's secretary. * DeadpanSnarker: She can more than keep up with Rizzo. * Hidden Depths: Apparently, she's studying to become an ultrasound technician (she has a B average). * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Extremely sarcastic, sometimes all too willing to step on other people's toes, and not always the most moral of rats -- but not a bad person. * SassySecretary: In [[Series/TheMuppets the 2015 show]]. * YouDirtyRat: Like Rizzo, she mostly subverts it, but still has some of the trademark characteristics, enough that it didn't come across as too out of character when she played one of the swindlers in the Muppet version of ''Literature/TheEmperorsNewClothes''.

Adding Chip.
* LoveToHate: Despite not being a villain per say, this is the Brian Henson's purpose for him. He's so cute, he's annoying.

!!Chip ->Debut: ''Series/TheJimHensonHour'' * LoveToHate: Despite not AscendedExtra: Managed to go from being an obscure Muppet on a short-running show to being a villain per say, this recurring character in [[Series/TheMuppets the 2015 show]]. * AuthorAvatar: He's a caricature of Bill Prady. The fact that Prady is a producer for the 2015 show is the Brian Henson's purpose for him. He's so cute, reason he managed to come back. * CatchPhrase: "I'm Chip. The IT guy." * NerdGlasses: He wears a pair of them. * RecurringExtra: When he's annoying. not contributing to the plot in the 2015 show, he tends to be seen working in the background. * RememberTheNewGuy: An odd case; he's not actually a new Muppet, but his obscurity means he's treated as one in the 2015 show. He has to introduce himself to just about every other cast member because he's just that unknown. * UnexpectedCharacter: Nobody expected him to return for ''The Muppets''. Not even ''himself''.

* AscendedExtra: Became an ascended extra starting with ''Muppets From Space'', but came full circle when he was DemotedToExtra for the 2011 movie.

* AscendedExtra: Became an ascended extra starting with ''Muppets From Space'', but came full circle when he was DemotedToExtra for ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Is completely absent from [[Series/TheMuppets the 2011 movie.2015 show]] so far, which is very notable considering that far less important Muppets have made appearances in it. His puppeteer is working on the show, so whether he'll make an appearance or not is still up in the air.
