Fergie gets ready to hit it hard this week with Ruth Buzzi’s episode of The Muppet Show!

This episode’s Muppet History segment honors and reflects over the legacy and work of Richard Hunt. Fergie discusses the difficult task of performing Sweetums and why Richard Hunt’s execution of the character is so incredible. The very consistent characterizations of The Electric Mayhem. The introduction of the Talking Houses sketch. Fergie also gets to interview Puppeteer, Wrier, Director (and crazily his friend) Noel MacNeal! You most likely know Noel as Bear from Bear in The Big Blue House on Playhouse Disney.
