On this episode of The Muppet Show the late Ethel Merman displays the talent that made her into the musical legend she is. The highlight of this episode is her first appearance when she sings a medley of her most well known show tunes with Kermit and the gang. The story of Fozzie trying to renegotiate his contract with the help of his (rather small) agent is also well done. The jokes are a little cornball, but they work regardless. The episode also has a satisfying finale with Ms. Merman lifing Fozzie's spirits with a rendition of a classic showtune.
