Mordecai Sledge

Mordecai Sledge

Mordecai Sledge is one of the main antagonists of the syndicated 1972 hour-long Muppet TV special "The Muppet Musicians of Bremen".

He is the leader of a gang of villains, consisting of Lardpork, Mean Floyd and Caleb Siles, and he is the original owner of Leroy the Donkey.

Mordecai has a particularly short temper, and it is sometimes difficult to understand what he is saying, which is usually a good thing, according to Kermit.



  • He was voiced by Francois Klanfer.
  • As the old "Featured Creature" page explains, these farmers were "part puppet and part costume. In long shots, the character's head was worn as a mask by a performer inside the costume. In close-ups, he was manipulated like a hand puppet." The illusion was so convincing that the Muppet Workshop received a phone call from a Hollywood makeup artist who was convinced that Henson had discovered a new form of makeup.
