Louis Kazagger is a Muppet sportscaster who provided commentary for the Muppet Sports sketches on The Muppet Show. Loosely inspired by Howard Cosell, Kazagger wore extreme plaids like Cosell, and also spoke with a similar nasal twang[1]. Kazagger reported with aplomb on absurd sporting events.

Kazagger's film appearances include background bits in The Muppet Movie and The Muppets Take Manhattan, and a significant cameo in The Great Muppet Caper, providing the play-by-play while Kermit the Frog and friends try to wrest the Baseball Diamond from Nicky Holiday. Kazagger's last hurrah came in 1992, appearing in a series of sports sketches for Good Morning America. There, he interviewed Gonzo about the Geek Winter Games and discussed the sport of Demolition Speedskating.

Kazagger was last seen in puppet form in the background of some scenes in Muppets Tonight but has since made appearances in the comic books Muppet Robin Hood and The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson, once again commenting on such ridiculous sporting events as Long-Distance Toast Hurling.
