The Nairobi Trio

God, I love Ernie Kovacs. The Nairobi Trio was a running gag on his show. I remember first seeing this when one of the networks rebroadcast episodes of his show, aptly titled The Ernie Kovacs Show, in the 1960's. Ernie is the one with the cigar and his wife Eddie Adams is the one playing the piano. The third ape could be anyone. Ernie had his friends (like Jack Lemmon and Frank Sinatra) play the part. The song is called "Solfeggio."
