Danish-born Victor Borge (1909-2000) was a classical pianist, conductor, composer, songwriter, entertainer and actor. During his long career, he appeared on radio and television, in movies, and made many comedy (and a few serious classical) albums. He also performed in concerts throughout the world.

One of his famous skits involved "phonetic punctation," in which he read a story out loud, and replaced each punctuations mark (such as commas, question marks and periods) with sound effects. He later performed this skit on The Electric Company.

In 1977, Borge appeared in several inserts on Sesame Street. (EKA: Episode 1186)

In 1979, he was the guest star on episode 405 of The Muppet Show.

He was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honor in 1999 for his lifetime contributions to arts and culture.

In the 2009 edition of A Capitol Fourth, Big Bird is about to conduct an orchestra and remarks "Pardon my back; pardon my front. That's the way I'm built. Victor Borge, 1956."
