    While the sketches and the humor deliver as they usually do, this episode of The Muppet Show does not hold up against other classic episodes (Peter Sellers, Don Knotts). The main reason being that it is difficult to understand what Rudoplh Nureyev is saying most of the time. However I will admit his opening scene was terrific. Sam throwing him out of the theater was terrific. Not to mention the funniest monent of the episode. This episode is not terrible, but I found it a little difficult to enjoy as much as others. However it does have its moments.moreless
