MT-Watson
PERFORMER Jerry Nelson
DEBUT 1997

Dr. Watson appeared on episode 206 of Muppets Tonight. He is Sherlock Holmes' companion, and shares company with Sherlock Holmes' Cat and Miss Weatherington.

Dr. Watson's grey hair, luxuriant moustache, and bluff, hearty voice (marveling at Holmes' deductions) owe more to the 1940s film portrayals by Nigel Bruce (which made the character more comic relief) and subsequent media depictions than to the original Sherlock Holmes character.
