Seymour is an elephant who appeared on Muppets Tonight. He and Pepe the King Prawn worked at the KMUP studios, as elevator operators in the first season and as commissary employees in the second. Seymour and Pepe ("We're two of a kind!") fancied themselves performers and sought to land a spot on the show whenever possible.

Although Seymour was dropped after the series, Pepe went on to become a major character. Pepe stated at MuppetFest that Seymour is currently living in a condo in Florida. In a 2008 interview, Pepe reported that Seymour's green card expired and he was subsequently deported to India where he works in a zoo.[1]

In a response to a Twitter question in 2012, Pepe said he's still friends with Seymour. The problem is he can't fit in a lot of the clubs Pepe goes to.[2] In another interview, he mentions Seymour works in the sanitation business in L.A.[3] According to The Muppets Character Encyclopedia, he's returned to the elevator business.

Seymour most recently made a cameo appearance in the 2012 children's novel Tales of a Sixth-Grade Muppet: The Good, the Bad, and the Fuzzy.

Merchandise

A ceramic Seymour figurine was produced in France, as part of a series of Muppet fèves. Additionally, Palisades Toys had planned on making a Seymour action figure for 2005, but plans were abandoned when the line was cancelled.
