From Muppet Wiki

Butch is a Bengal tiger who made various appearances on The Muppet Show, starting in season 4. This puppet was also used on Sesame Street.

The tiger was named onscreen in episode 416 (and performed by Jim Henson), when he teamed up with a lion as "Butch and Sundance", running away from an animal training act. (This is a reference to the 1969 film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.)

In Episode 513 and Episode 516, he was used as a saber-toothed tiger.

He was later seen as an audience member on Muppets Tonight.

The tiger puppet was the first Muppet built by designer Ed Christie.

A page from "Forest Rescue Mission." Captain Planet's gonna show up and kick their asses any second now.

"Butch" is apparently an abandoned name concept for Sparkplug Witwicky's son.

At OTFCC 2004, Bob Budiansky stated that the story treatment he received from Hasbro used the name Spike. However, his copy of the treatment has the name crossed out and replaced with Buster in his own writing. Budiansky could not recall the details, but speculated at the convention that Hasbro had asked for the name to be changed.

The new name may have been Budiansky's choice, or may have been told to him by somebody at Hasbro. Nevertheless, the name "Buster" was changed only for the comics series -- in the cartoon and most other associated products, Sparkplug's son remained "Spike". (Later in the comics series a second son called "Spike" would appear as well.)

What this implies for "Butch" is that it was probably a very, very very early name for the character, perhaps sent out with the first version of the story treatment that went to licensors for use in their products. It is quite rare to come across the name.

One example of a licensed product which uses the name is the coloring book Forest Rescue Mission. Somewhat surprisingly, this book is published with a copyright of 1985 -- most errors such as name mistakes and off-model drawings are found in 1984 products which, presumably, were prepared while the names and models were still in development.
