She further made her first viral video appearance in Bohemian Rhapsody, donning a new hat.

Promotional photos 2011-present Janice sports bangs on occasion (though only in photos). She is often wearing her classic signature hat again, with a feather similar to the one worn during The Muppet Show's fifth season, now positioned askew.
Design sketch by Michael Frith 1974 This original sketch indicates that Janice was intended to be a male character, a takeoff on Mick Jagger's emaciated frame. Her name is probably a reference to Janis Joplin. However, in her final form, she bears very little resemblance to either Jagger or Joplin.
