The Bust of Beethoven is a statue of Ludwig van Beethoven, who occasionally comments on Rowlf's piano playing on The Muppet Show. The bust first appeared in episode 312.

In episode 324, he had a run-in with Kermit:

Kermit: "If I remember my history, Beethoven was supposed to be deaf."
Bust: "I'm not Beethoven, dummy, I'm a bust of Beethoven!"
Kermit: "Of course."
Bust: "It's a job. You gotta do something for a living, I'm a bust of Beethoven. Any more questions?"

However, in episode 405, when Victor Borge plays Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and Fozzie thinks the pianist made a mistake, the Bust assures him, "No, that's the way I wrote it."

A toy version of the Bust of Beethoven was created as a pack-in for a Rowlf Action Figure in 2003.
