Saturday Morning Cartoons: A Clanky Cantata

Email a Friend

This Saturday's cartoon features J.S. Bach's famous chorale "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" from Cantata BWV 147. In a 1980 episode of "The Muppet Show," Rowlf the Dog attempts a few minutes of musical profundity with this work, but his efforts are thwarted by Beauregard the janitor. And you thought coughing in the concert hall was bad.
