The Glutton is an overweight, humanoid Muppet who appeared in the Ed Sullivan Show sketch which aired on February 17, 1971. He is the ravenous gentleman who rapidly consumes a beverage, a chicken leg, and a saltshaker, among other items. While cracking nuts, he finds a purple creature inside a nutshell that shrinks him. The Glutton meets an ironic end, eaten by a larger version of himself. However, he joins Jim Henson for a curtain call, and attempts to devour Ed Sullivan.
His appetite and facial design are similar to the later Lardpork character.
