These hilarious, uncut episodes are jam-packed with all the outrageous skits, music hits, great guest stars and Muppet moments you love plus some extra laugh-out-loud tunes and sketches. Celebrity guests include Diana Ross, Brooke Shields and Rudolph Nureyev.
Diana Ross, Brooke Shields, and Rudolph Nureyev dance, sing, and banter in this trio of episodes from television's The Muppet Show (1976-1981). Dressed as a diva, the star of soul joins Kermit in a "live" variety show to a tough crowd of Muppets. When Ross is not giggling at the good-natured Fozzie or those mellow crooners, the Gills Brothers, she belts out a couple of familiar songs, including "Love Hangover." In the second installment, Brooke Shields, 15, plays Alice, in a thematic show based on Alice in Wonderland. Shields is paired with Miss Piggy as Queen, who is outraged at her only line, "Off with her head!" The highlight is a Muppets rendition of Jabberwocky, hilariously offbeat and imaginative. Finally, ballet superstar Rudolph Nureyev lends his talent and self-deprecating style to a variety-show format, fending off the flirtations of Miss Piggy. In a truly Muppets moment, Nureyev dances with Piggy to "Swine Lake," or, rather, avoids being knocked down by the imposing porker. Raucous fun. (Ages 5 and older) --Lynn Gibson
I ordered this DVD over a month ago and have NOT received it. I contacted the seller and I was told I needed to wait longer. I am NOT happy with this service this slow.Published on April 14, 2008 by Joy Y. Bryant
Dear Sir or Madam,
I cannot comment on this CD, since the CD I received was defective, and I sent it back to the seller.
While "weird" is the natural domain of the Muppets, this set of episodes is weird even for them. That isn't exactly a good thing, either. Read morePublished on June 21, 2004 by J. Garlen
