10 Puppets that Made it Big on Television

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog

Resembling a rottweiler, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is a rubbery hand puppet featured on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Triumph speaks with an Eastern European accent, puffs on a cigar, and his trademark catchphrase is ". . . for me to poop on!" -- usually spoken to negate a compliment that precedes it, such as "You're the best . . . for me to poop on!" Since his debut in a 1997 comedy skit about the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, Triumph has been tossing insults at guests in the style of comedian Don Rickles.
