Mah Na Mah Na – Classic Muppets Awesomeness [video]

This reminds me what a great show the Muppet Show was. I was just a kid but it does seem like they successfully created a show that adults could enjoy watching with their kids.

I’m pretty positive the clip above is from the Ed Sullivan Show in 1969. (Before my time. And even before the Muppet Show itself.)

Want to know the origins of this song? In the late 1960’s Italian composer Piero Umiliani wrote the song “Mah Nà Mah Nà” for a controversial mondo film about the seedy underbelly of Sweden called Svezia, inferno e paradiso (Sweden: Heaven and Hell). You can listen to the original version of Mah Nà Mah Nà here. (Thank you Wikipedia!)

P.S. My favorite memory of this song is that when I was a really little kid, my dance teacher picked this song as our tap dance recital number. (Hmmmm, there must be a betamax video of that floating around somewhere!)

If you don’t know about Re-ment, you might want to go hide your wallet right now! Re-ment is a Japanese toy company that makes teeny tiny miniatures that are so cute, they’ll make your head explode.

This is their airline food set. And all I want to know is… Where can you get good looking airline food like this these days?!

You can purchase Re-ment at lots of places online including eBay.

Marshall Zipper Charms

These adorable marshmallow-themed zipper pulls are designer vinyl toys which fall into the spendier price range. But if you’re into collecting that kinda thing, you can buy a set of 16 of these little cuties all with different personalities for $60. I love that the boxes are as awesomely appealing as the toys.

Designed by Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi and available at the awesome designer vinyl toy store Rotofugi.
