Rita you give them fever and the bear answers strange phone calls!
12 March 2016 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is episode 5 from season one of "The Muppet Show" from 1976 and it features the talented actress Rita Moreno. I for one over the years have only from time to time saw Rita in things, but when watching again old Muppet Show episodes I was thrilled to see her talents on display! With typical episodes it features singing and funny lines from the Muppets, yet this one is most memorable for the fact that Rita sings "You give me Fever" to close out the show! And with her hot looks that's so true! And Fozzie the Bear battles the telephone as each time he answers the phone it does something different and funny from spilling water to blowing smoke out! Wow funny and nice episode with the attractive and talented Rita Moreno.
