If you have trouble keeping them straight, remember: Waldorf is the one with the mustache, while Statler is the one whose eyes are swollen shut because Keegan-Michael Key repeatedly punched him in the face on live television. Here they are in their happier and less bruised days, roasting the Swedish Chef’s performance of “Popcorn.”
