Statler and Waldorf are [[ThoseTwoGuys 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 Wiki/TVTropes. 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, JustForFun/ReportSiht and many others.

Oh by the way, do you know where they got their names from? The two largest hotels in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, the Statler (now the famous Hotel Pennsylvania--the one right across Seventh Avenue from Penn Station--known for its world-famous phone number from the 1940s Music/GlennMiller 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).
