Marvin Suggs

Character

Marvin Suggs is a flamboyant musician that wears a frilly, multicolored shirt. He is best known for playing an instrument known as a Muppaphone, a group of small, round, furry pink and orange Muppets that emit a tonal "ow" (voiced by Henson and Jerry Nelson) when Marvin strikes them on the head with his mallet. During season three of The Muppet Show, Suggs and the Muppaphone were part of an "explicit criticism of violence" with Suggs being explicitly punished for his violence in an episode where a witchdoctor turns Suggs into a Muppaphone. The act has been compared to the sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus called "Arthur Ewing and His Musical Mice". He was designed by Rollie Krewson. He appears in 2011's The Muppets.
