The Muppets: Mahna, Mahna on the Ed Sullivan Show, November 30, 1969

Jim Henson, Frank Oz and Loretta Long were the hidden hands and audible voices that turned into the rampant earworms of several generations.

Mah-na Mah-na wasn't just a humorous tongue twister, it was unobtrusively clever Muppet socialization. This is a masterclass of using unexpected materials to teach children esoteric concepts.

Mother of three lovely flames that burn the stars. Two partners that help me keep them fueled with music and laughter. Three cats, one dog and a lemonburst ball python. We are a puzzle of chaos, constantly finding our pieces.

    Great info. Mahna mahna, I laughed so much the first time I watched it a few years ago, I never realized there was an even earlier version that you showed us, before the pink aliens version (link below)
