DEBUT 1996

Lester Tomwater appears in the championship round of "Swift Wits" in the UK Spots in episode 110 of Muppets Tonight. Because the show had failed to produce any champions, host Snookie Blyer stood in as a contestant while Lester was pulled from the audience to provide clues -- his name mistaken as Chester. As such, when the clock begins to tick away, Snookie begs "Chester" to provide him with the clues so that he can win his way off of the show and save Magda from being eaten by Big Mean Carl. The clock runs out and Lester reveals his real name, and says that he'd never answer to Chester; it's a girl's name.
