Will Possum is the stagehand at the town talent show in Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. He is a kind old possum and enjoys fishing in the river near Gretchen Fox's Dock.

The puppet later surfaced on The Muppet Show as a Woodland Animal.

For Goodspeed Opera House's stage adaptation, the role of Will was originated by Jeff Hiller.

Notes

  • He is referred to as William Possum a few times in the script for the special.
