Afternoon Aural: Liza and The Muppets

Hot damn! It’s been ages since we last watched The Muppet Show – not to mention since the last time the series aired – so we totally forgot about all their amazing musical guests, like Ms. Liza Minelli.

Above you’ll see the legendary song bird sing “Copacabana. while the jump brings “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” plus some random Muppet shenanigans.

    AT LAST! SOMETHING worth watching! :-)

    It’s refreshing to know that Liza’s acting talent hasn’t changed in 25 years.
    Thank you for the nostalgic look, Queerty. It reminds me of simpler times.

    When I was a teenager, we would all gather in front of the television to watch The Muppet Show. Monday nights at 7:30, the entire family would congregate to watch this show. It was probably the only time you could see the 5 of us together at any one time (My parents, my two sisters and me). We all had our favorite skits and our favorite muppets.
    My mother was a scientist, so she loved Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker.
    The elder of my sisters loved the Swedish Chef.
    My baby sister loved Miss Piggy.
    I loved the band, especially the trumpet gag.
    My father loved Statler and Waldorf. He always said he liked them because he was just like them.
    One of my favorite skits was when Rudolph Naraev danced with the hippo. Then there was Veterinary Hospital and Pigs in Space. (The best was the Star Wars send up with Mark Hamill.)
    Who can ever forget Manum Manah?
    The muppets taught us ballet, opera and theater and made it silly so we could laugh at it.
    Thank you once again for this walk down memory lane. This was wonderful.

    Um, it’s MinNelli…

    Wow, she looks startlingly like her mother circa the Judy Garland Show years when she’s sitting at that table at the start of Copacabana…
