In the sketch, Christopher Reeve attempts to give the traditional "Alas, poor Yorick" soliloquy from Hamlet and Yorick speaks up to argue with the actor. Eventually, Reeve tosses Yorick into a nearby basketball net and Fozzie notes, "Shakespeare 1, Audience nothing!"
A small replication of Yorick was produced and packaged with the Uncle Deadly Action Figure by Palisades Toys. The pack-in accessory was labeled as "Muppet Skull," allegedly to avoid confusion with the Sam and Friends character of the same name.
