A group of Bird Dancers could be seen in several episodes of The Muppet Show. Performed by dancers from London's Royal Ballet, they wore a full head-covering, Muppet-like mask and human dancer costumes, making them look distinct from other full bodied dancers which were typically Muppet monsters.
In episode 421, they assist Doug Henning with a magic act. The female dancer is locked away in a wooden chest and switches places with Henning from behind a drop. She is carried offstage by an enamoured Doglion.
