Rita Moreno singing "Fever" on the Muppet Show
30 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the funniest guest episodes. Rita Moreno looking very sexy in a red strapless dress, starts singing "Fever" Peggy Lee's great hit seriously, when Animal's drumwork in the background gets a bit loud! (Buddy Rich, I believe played the drums!). Halfway through she stops and goes up to him and in half English and Spanish tells him to calm it and cool it or she will......

The scene continues but Animal gets really carried away by the Fever, drowning out Rita's voice! She walks round behind him , picks up the cymbols and squashes his head between them. As he falls unconscious he mutters, "MY kind a woman" in an appreciative tone!
