Rudolf Nureyev with Sam the Eagle on The Muppet Show.

Rudolf Nureyev (March 17, 1938January 6, 1993) was a Russian-born ballet dancer and actor. He may not had any Disney roles, but he made a guest appearance in episode 213 of The Muppet Show. It's no strange coincidence, however, that he shared the death date with another Muppet Show guest star, Dizzy Gillespie.
