Howard Snake is one of the Riverbottom Gang members and the bass player of the Riverbottom Nightmare Band in the 1977 special Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. He resembles a rattlesnake.

The character's name was not mentioned in the original special; it has been used in the 2008 Goodspeed Opera House's stage adaptation.

On stage, the role of Howard was originated by James Silson.

Howard Snake later appears during The Rainbow Connection finale of The Muppet Movie.

Notes

  • Dabs of hot glue coating the puppet's fabric were used to give Howard his scaly look. The glue was then painted to look like scales. The same technique was used for Fred Lizard.
