Mulch first appeared in a Muppet Show opening number, singing "For Me and My 'Goyle" in episode 509. There, Mulch, performed by Jerry Nelson, acted as the Hunchback of Notre Dame, crooning to a gargoyle. He also pursued guest star Debbie Harry as she sang "One Way or Another".

Mulch also made an appearance in the 1981 special The Muppets Go to the Movies, as the monster in the "Nephew of Frankenstein" sketch.

He showed up again on Muppets Tonight in 1996, as Dr. Phil van Neuter's assistant in the "Tales from the Vet" sketches. In Muppets Tonight, Mulch lost the ability to speak English; he communicated in a guttural, grunting language that only Dr. van Neuter understood. His role in these sketches often resulted in van Neuter being humiliated in some way.

One installment revealed that Dr. van Neuter is married to Mulch's sister, Composta Heap.
