A roach with a French accent and fondness for cooking, this unsanitary, disease-ridden bug debuted on The Jim Henson Hour in the Muppet TV segments performed by Steve Whitmire. He next appeared on The Animal Show with Mak Wilson and John Eccleston as his performers in seasons 1 and 2. Like the Swedish Chef, whom he combated twice in The Jim Henson Hour, Yves's segments often ended with him becoming victim to either humiliation or comedic violence.
