Maude's Burlesque Show
5 August 2019 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Maude is putting on a show to raise money for the library fund, Arthur objects to it being a burlesque show.

The first of several "put on a show" episodes and one of the best. Many sitcoms tried this but Maude was the best at it, mostly because Beatrice Arthur was a seasoned Broadway musical comedy performer. She gets to do a raucous version of "Hard Hearted Hannah" in this one. Arthur has some funny scenes objected to what he thinks is pornography. Maude and Florida do a funny rendition of "Me And My Shadow" though liberal Maude insists that she play the shadow. Arthur finally agrees to the show going on as long he can do war and patriotic songs. There is a hilarious finale with Maude as a tap dancing Statue Of Liberty. The last scene has Arthur doing his war song while Carol does a wild sexy dance behind him, he thinks he is a hit.
