'''Waldorf:''' You can't ruin what you don't have!\\
'''Both:''' ''Do-ho-ho-ho-hoh!'' ]]-]

->'''Waldorf''': [[NewMedia The internet]] is a completely different culture, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSDj7bjAv2s isn't it?]]\\
'''Statler''': You said it. [[{{GIFT}} Everything]] here is immediately followed by [[{{Troll}} sarcastic comments and nasty responses]].\\
'''Waldorf''': [[SelfDeprecation Yup, we're finally where we belong]].\\
'''Both''': Do-ho-ho-ho-hoh!

[[ThoseTwoGuys Statler and Waldorf]] are two side characters from ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' whose entire purpose is to heckle and insult the rest of the cast, along with each episode's guest. They're the GreekChorus for the Muppet universe, best known for TheStinger that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14njUwJUg1I they drop]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-R3ZYnu04rI at the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJNxj1FdKuo end of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SK6TVqbsKVk&feature=related each episode]], almost always containing yet another crack at the show followed by their [[CatchPhrase signature]] [[SignatureLaugh "Do-ho-ho-ho-hoh!"]]. You can find the tropes associated with them on [[Characters/TheMuppetShow the character sheet]] for ''Series/TheMuppetShow''.

As the first page quote indicates, they have discovered where people like them reside. Finding their places in the world, they choose to lurk among them.

Good snark being a precious inspirational resource, it's no surprise then that Statler and Waldorf have been appearing in other media. They've set up shop in [[http://www.youtube.com/user/heckleu247 YouTube]], as well as here on the TVTropesWiki. Though not nearly as well known, this pushes them into the group of memetic characters who inhabit the wiki along with JustForFun/TropeTan, '''[[Creator/BrianBlessed BRIAN BLESSED]]''', Tropers/TheAdvertisementServer, TheToblerone, AliceAndBob, ReportSiht and many others.

Oh by the way, do you know where they got their names from? The two largest hotels in New York City, the Statler (now the famous Hotel Pennsylvania, known for its world-famous phone number from the 1940s Glenn Miller tune of the same name, [+ 1 (212)] '''[=PEnnsylvania=] 6-5000'''), and the Waldorf (now the Waldorf-Astoria). In [[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Astoria fact]], Astoria is Waldorf's wife (who [[YouLookFamiliar looks an awful lot like Statler]]). A little bit of trivia, exclusively for TV Tropes readers.

If you wish to have them visit a page, please bring it up in one of the discussion pages (either [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/remarks.php?trope=JustForFun.StatlerAndWaldorf here]] or for the page in question).
