Golden Girl Bea Arthur today celebrates her 85th birthday, and we're celebrating by offering a few clips of Bea doing what she does best, entertaining. Here she is...

...singing for a motley assortment of aliens as the proprietor of an intergalactic bar in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.

...roasting Pam Anderson.

...and singing "Man In the Moon" at a tribute to Jerry Herman.
