PERFORMER Bill Barretta
DEBUT 1996

Frankie Yakovic was featured in episode 107 of Muppets Tonight as the first act put on by Gonzo and Rizzo in a desperate last-ditch attempt to keep the ratings above fifty. He failed to impress, and was yanked off-stage by a giant hook within seconds.

He is a yak parody of polka-king Frankie Yankovic.

The puppet used for this character was originally made as a Gnu from The Muppet Show and as Frankie the Wildebeest for the Wildebeest & Turtle episode of The Animal Show.
