Waldorf is one of the old Muppet hecklers in the balcony (the other one being Statler) on The Muppet Show. He was named after The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York (Waldorf's wife is named Astoria as well). He and Statler have appeared in all of the Muppet movies (usually in different, but recognizable, identities). He was performed by Jim Henson until Henson's death in 1990. He is now performed by Dave Goelz. Waldorf was performed by Victor Yerrid for Statler and Waldorf: From the Balcony.
