Kermit tries to pronounce Wagner

Kermit struggles to pronounce Wagner in The Muppet Show episode 213.

Richard Wagner (1813-1883) was a German composer best remembered for writing a number of operas. Unlike most opera composers, Wagner wrote both the libretto and the music for each of his works, making him the sole creator of the characters and stories found within.


  • The fictional composer Giuseppe Wagner, mentioned in The Muppet Show episode 213, is an amalgamation of Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner.
  • Zubin Beckmesser takes his name from Sixtus Beckmesser, a character from Wagner's opera Die Meistersinger (The Mastersingers of Berlin).
