PERFORMER Bill Barretta
DEBUT 1997

A whale portrays Sherlock Holmes in a Muppets Tonight sketch from episode 206, part of The Classic Theater of Whales. He possesses the Holmesian deductive reasoning, but his size creates a tendency to crush his housekeeper and his cat. His apartment decor includes a framed painting of a magnifying glass and a statue of Justice with her scales.

As a marine mammal, this Sherlock requires Dr. Watson to draw him a bath.
