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
