Zeke

Zeke with Slim Wilson in The Great Muppet Caper

Zeke is the banjo player for Lubbock Lou and His Jughuggers. He has shaggy yellow hair, a shaggy yellow beard, and wears round-lensed sunglasses.

Although the other jugband members debuted in Episode 208, Zeke did not appear until Episode 212. In seasons 4 and 5, Zeke was seen less often with the jug-band, but instead frequently backed up Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, usually on the marimba. It was at this point that the character was assigned to Steve Whitmire.

Zeke can be seen without his sunglasses in John Denver and The Muppets: Rocky Mountain Holiday. He also appeared in the "Rainbow Connection Finale" of The Muppet Movie and as one of the residents of the Happiness Hotel in The Great Muppet Caper.
