We’re talking about Minutes 25 & 26 of The Muppets Take Manhattan, in which Kermit shouts from the top of the Empire State Building and Rizzo demands more help at work. With very special guest Noah Diamond, Marx Brothers scholar and author of 400 Years in Manhattan!

PLUS: How long did Piggy stay away from the city? New Yorkers don’t visit the Empire State Building! The significance of Kermit’s voice cracking! Grits get their big break! And Rizzo as a political symbol!

ALSO: Listen to Noah’s podcast, The Marx Brothers Council Podcast!
