The Riverbottom Gang is a group of antagonists on "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas". They are the last-minute addition to the Waterville's first annual talent contest. Members of the group include Chuck (the mean stoat leader played by Frank Oz), Stan Weasel (played by Jerry Nelson), Fred Lizard (played by Richard Hunt), Howard Snake (played by Jim Henson) and an unnamed catfish (played by Dave Goelz). The gang's repertoire includes the self-referential "Riverbottom Nightmare Band". In addition to performing on stage, they enjoy breaking traffic laws, riding their snowmobiles, and destroying merchandise.
