Lardpork is one of the villainous farmers in The Muppet Musicians of Bremen. Farmer Lardpork has a big appetite, and he is very fat. He is a part of a gang of thieves, along with Mordecai Sledge, Mean Floyd and Caleb Siles. He keeps chickens, including the rooster T.R..

As the old Henson.com "Featured Creature" page explains, these farmers were "part puppet and part costume. In long shots, the character's head was worn as a mask by a performer inside the costume. In close-ups, he was manipulated like a hand puppet." The illusion was so convincing that the Muppet Workshop received a phone call from a Hollywood makeup artist who was convinced that Henson had discovered a new form of makeup.
