Dr. Julius Strangepork was a character on The Muppet Show, and a regular Muppet character . He is a Muppet pig, who most often appeared with Miss Piggy and Link Hogthrob in the recurring Pigs in Space skit (The Muppet Show), in which he was the science officer on the USS Swinetrek. His name is a reference to the eccentric scientist in Stanley Kubrick's film, Dr. Strangelove.


A similar design first appeared in the original pilot, Sex and Violence, named Doctor Nauga in the skit Return to Beneath the Planet of the Pigs, and the following At the Dance skit. During the first season of the Muppet Show, a similar puppet was used in the At the Dance skits (usually dancing with Miss Piggy or one of the dancers). The main difference between these puppet designs was the hair color—the Season One pig had brown hair, not gray. By the time he appeared in Pigs in Space, the design had reverted to its original format. He wore wire-rim glasses and sported wide, bushy grey sideburns, and occasionally seen in his "Pigs in Space" uniform, although he is sometimes seen in a white lab coat, similar to the blue one worn by Dr. Bunsen Honeydew. He normally speaks with a German accent, and usually realizes problems in the skit's plot before Capt. Link Hogthrob or First Mate Piggy does.


He is shown on a recurring basis during The Muppet Show, and has been shown as a background character on various other Muppet movies and specials. Dr. Julius Strangepork is seen various times in the 2011 film, The Muppets.
