Bobby Benson is the leader of the Baby Band on The Muppet Show. He wears sunglasses, and has a cigarette perpetually dangling from his lip.

The Whatnot puppet, with his trademark shades, first appeared as a trumpeter with the Electric Mayhem band in episode 215 and episode 218. He also appeared as a banjo player in episode 302.

The six Babies debuted in episode 308.

They were brought together for the first time as "Bobby Benson's Baby Band" in episode 319, playing "Pennsylvania 6-5000" and "Tuxedo Junction." They also performed "Baby Driver" in episode 511, while speeding in a baby carriage.

Bobby was arrested in episode 405, and he left the Babies in the care of Miss Piggy, who tried to prove to Kermit that she would make a good mother. The Babies tore up Miss Piggy's dressing room and drove her crazy. They also performed onstage in that episode, playing Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with Victor Borge. Bobby returned at the end of the episode to take charge of the Babies again.

Benson has also had cameo appearances in The Muppets Take Manhattan, A Muppet Family Christmas, The Muppet Christmas Carol (as a streetcorner choir leader), and Muppets Tonight episode 108.
