Sweetums is a very tall Muppet ogre.


The Frog Prince

He first appeared in the 1971 TV special The Frog Prince as a henchman for Taminella Grinderfall to try and devour Robin the Frog whole.

The Muppet Show

Sweetums then went on to be one of the stars of The Muppet Show. He had little appearances in some of the show's episodes, but sang and danced with some of the guest stars.

The Muppet Movie

Sweetums also appeared in most of the Muppets' feature films. In the Muppet Movie, Sweetums used to be a car jack who was treated very badly by Mad Man Mooney (Milton Berle). After Jack drops the price of a car for Kermit and his friends, the ogre hears about Hollywood and decides to follow the Muppets there. He tries to catch up to them and finally caught up to them in the end.

The Great Muppet Caper

In the opening of the Great Muppet Caper, Sweetums sang a line in "Hey a Movie!"

Muppet Treasure Island

In Muppet Treasure Island, Sweetums is one of the mutineers who sides with Long John Silver in the search for the treasure until he reforms when he saves Kermit the Frog/Captain Abraham Smollet and Sam the Eagle/Samuel Arrow from the pirates; revealing that he loves them the same way John Silver loves Jim Hawkins.

The Muppets' Wizard of Oz

In the Muppet's Wizard of Oz, Sweetums is one of the Flying Monkeys (controlled, of course) working for the Wicked Witch of the West.
