Yolanda Rat is a female rat who first appeared in The Muppets Take Manhattan, as a friend and love interest of Rizzo the Rat.


Yoland first appears in The Muppets Take Manhattan. Rizzo frequently makes passes at Yolanda during the course of the film. She re-appeared in Muppet Classic Theater (performed by Julianne Buescher), and as a large-scale stage puppet in The Muppet Show On Tour: 2nd Edition. She was also shown in the background of the Muppets Tonight opening theme. She also appears in the 2011 film The Muppets, as a supporting role, helping with the Muppet telethon.

Yolanda appeared on Entertainment Weekly reunion feature, with the rest of the cast from The Muppet Show, even though she didn't appear until The Muppets Take Manhattan, three years after the The Muppet Show ended.[1]


Yolanda appears along with Rizzo, Bubba, and the other rats throughout different movies and specials as part of a group. The rats are usually shown in the background, and are rarely main characters. She is shown as a love interest for Rizzo, and usually does not appear without him, although he appears without her occasionally.
