Saturday Morning Cartoons: Mozart Meets The Muppets

Email a Friend

For this Saturday’s cartoon we take a slight detour from the world of animation and present a special performance of a well-known opera duet. From a 1977 episode of "The Muppet Show," Miss Piggy and Link Hogthrob sing “La ci darem la mano” from Mozart’s Don Giovanni (or, as announced by Kermit, “from the third act of The Barber of Der Fledermoose by Giuseppe Wagner ... or whatever.”)

The episode featured as its guest star the famous ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev.
