Fozzie's ladder trick

Fozzie's ladder trick

Grover ladder

Grover deals with a long ladder.

A gag used in cartoons and films where a character is seen carrying a comically long object. We see them holding from the front, then when the end is reached, the same character is holding it.

For the Muppets, the technique is often achieved with the use of two puppets of a single character on both ends of the object.

Although not as technically impressive as live-action and puppetry which use camera tricks or duplicates to achieve the effect, the trope has been employed in animated instances as well.
