You can watch Hollywood legends Julie Andrews and Rita Moreno as they appeared on The Muppet Show as part of the Museum of the Moving Image’s summer programming.

The museum will screen the two famed actresses’s appearances on the popular children’s show from Aug 1. through Aug. 5 as part of its Summer Kids Matinees series.

Julie Andrews appeared on the show in 1977, and performed “Lonely Goatherd” and “Whistle a Happy Tune”. Rita Moreno’s 1979 episode, where she sings “Fever” with Animal, earned her an Emmy award.

The running time for the two episodes is approximately 50 minutes, with tickets sold at $15, and other prices available for seniors, students, and youth under 18 years of age.

The Summer Kids Matinees series began on July 11, and screens beloved family friendly films Wednesday through Sunday at 11 a.m. The series kicked off with a viewing of Yellow Submarine, and will end with a screening of Black Panther in the week of August 22.

The museum also debuted a permanent exhibition to Jim Henson, creator of The Muppet Show, last year.
