Bobo the Bear debuted on Muppets Tonight as the jovial but bumbling security guard at the KMUP TV studio.

Bobo was featured prominently in the episode featuring guest star Cindy Crawford, in which Bobo fell in love with Crawford and made a number of clumsy attempts to woo her.

Ernst Stavros Grouper insisted that Bobo changes his name to "Whitley Nibbles the Television Elf." In another episode, Bobo claimed his name was "Bizzo the Bat," in order to scam Rizzo out of food.

Bobo appeared on Statler and Waldorf: From the Balcony at movies.com, where he was seen auditioning for Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. Bobo performed parodies of Star Wars characters such as Yoda: "'Careful you must be when sensing the future!' Geez, what is this guy, dyslexic or something?"

He also appeared in "The Muppets on Muppets," a bonus feature on The Muppet Show: Season Two. Where he says his favorite place to visit is New Zealand. Other appearances include portraying an airport security guard in A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa (working alongside Frank Meany) and starring in a series of videos on Disney Xtreme Digital called "Better Living with Bobo," where he is paired with Beauregard.

In The Muppets, Bobo serves a similar function to his appearances in Muppets from Space and Letters to Santa, as the well-meaning, suit-clad assistant to the antagonist. In this case, Bobo is the "less-helpful-than-you-might-wish assistant" to Tex Richman.

Behind the scenes

The Bobo puppet originally debuted as one of the bears that hibernated with Fozzie Bear in The Muppets Take Manhattan (where he was performed by Jerry Nelson). The puppet was slightly altered when it was used as Bobo. Also prior to becoming Bobo, the bear puppet would also be used in a promotional photo for the unproduced series W.I.L.D., as well as Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree, and in one of the Muppet Time recurring sketches, Frog Scouts, as a customer who buys all the cookies from them.
