Rita Moreno & Animal – “Fever”

I remember last year on Belgrade Marathon while I was waiting for my friends at the finish line, one jazz band was playing, among all other stuff, opening theme from Muppet Show. You know the song; It’s time to put on makeup..It’s time to dress up right..It’s time to raise the curtain on the Muppet Show tonight :) Oh well, at the middle of the song, one man from that band said to the microphone -People, Animal couldn’t stand it anymore- and then all instruments went silent, so the drummer was drumming like crazy I am sure not less than 10 minutes! Then they continued with the song. I was laughing and laughing, that really brightened my day :)

Rita Moreno won Emmy award for appearance in this episode of Muppet Show. The above clip was filmed in 1977. I loved Muppets so much, and this is my appeal to all TV people in charge – please give us Muppets back! They were the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational – this is what we call the Muppet Show!

    Great Dejan! Thanks for this”-) My son was weaned on the Muppets, and he and I would lie on our stomachs and just watch, so it was necessary for me as well. We regularly did Muppet bedtime conversations . Let’s hope by the time people my age get to the old folks home, some wise recreational therapist will make daily Muppet watchings available.
    This one is so priceless – I love it! Boiiing! Whack! Ringing in the ears;-)
