The Worm is one of the inhabitants of the titular maze in Labyrinth. A cheery fellow with a Cockney accent and colorful scarf, he makes his home inside one of the labyrinth's walls, where he encounters Sarah. The worm, in addition to repeatedly asking her to tea to meet his wife, informs Sarah of the walls which have hidden openings. He also inadvertently misdirects her, in attempting to keep her away from "that castle."

As reported by puppeteer Karen Prell on her website, the worm existed as both a finger-sized rod puppet and a larger scale hand puppet, for use in close-ups. The body, head and mouth were manipulated manually, while radio controls operated the eye movements and blinks.

The Worm later appeared in a Jim Henson Hour pitch tape.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Worm referred to the twelve-thousand year old remnants of a deceased space worm that inhabited the moon Eskaron, forming the walls of the tunnel that it laired in when it died. It was discovered at some point between 72 BBY and 53 BBY, during one of the races through the moon's interior when one of the racers, Likk Nibk, took a wrong turn while trying to pass a rival YT-1300. Nibk blasted through the end of the worm and ended up winning the race. After that, scientists went to explore it, and races were routed away from the worm's location.
