Butch is a Bengal tiger who made various appearances onSesame Street. He was the first Muppet designed and built by Ed Christie, and originally appeared as a saber-toothed tiger (performed by Brian Muehl) in the "Toothbrush" sketch of the Caveman Days series. The puppet was also used onThe Muppet Show, starting in season 4.

A modified version of the puppet appeared as Tungar the Tiger on Panwapa, and has continued to be used onSesame Street (performed in most recent instances by Matt Vogel).
