Aretha in Muppet Christmas Carol

Aretha is a cave creature who sings along with Gobo on "Only Way Home" in the Fraggle Rock episode "Sir Hubris and the Gorgs." Her name is a reference to Aretha Franklin.

Possessing orange eyes, protruding teeth, and a moving brow, Aretha was reused in many subsequent productions, in both male and female roles, played by a variety of puppeteers: as a female chorus member in The Muppet Christmas Carol, a townsperson in Muppet Treasure Island, and a member of the Flying Monkeys motorcycle gang in The Muppets' Wizard of Oz.

Aretha is one of only a handful of monsters who appeared on "Mopatop's Shop" who ever returned to the American Muppets. The puppet was later used as Huffy Monster.
