Powers and abilities
Always get the last laugh at the end of the show.
Waldorf: "Just when do you think this show is terrible something wonderful happens." Statler: "What?" Waldorf: "It ends." (both laugh)
Statler & Waldorf share the stage left balcony box in the Muppet Theater, where the two take delight in heckling every aspect of The Muppet Show. Statler and Waldorf are especially unforgiving to Fozzie Bear. However, it is revealed in A Muppet Family Christmas that the two critics are friends with Fozzie's mother Emily Bear.
They always have the last word, with a final comment at the end of almost every episode of The Muppet Show.
Statler and Waldorf also appear in the The Muppet Christmas Carol, where they are given the namesJacob and Robert Marley, respectively. Like their normal selves, their past selves in the film also mercilessly heckle Fozzie Bear (who was playing Fezziwig) during the annual Christmas party. The only time they expressed any gratefulness to Fezziwig was when he gave his speech, only because it was immensely short.
When they appear on Muppets Tonight, they're often watching it from a nursing home.
