Throwback Thursday: Muppets Sing Lonely Goatherd

Julie Andrews partnered with the Henson Company to produce and star in her own children’s show on Netflix, Julie’s Greenroom, which teaches preschoolers about the performing arts through puppets, songs, and celebrity cameos. Of course, this isn’t the first time Ms. Andrews starred in something Henson-related.

Back in the 1970s, like many other celebrities back then, Julie Andrews made a guest appearance on The Muppet Show, where she performed many of her famous hits from movies such as Sound of Music. My personal favorite was her opening act with their performance of “The Lonely Goatherd”—if for no other reason that being able to see Kermit and the other Muppets in lederhosen!
