    does anybody remember the muppet show skit with the two pink muppets and the rock star looking muppet?that would continuisly say "mah nuh mah nuh" then the pink ones said "do do do do"."mah nuh mah nuh" "do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do". and for some reason the rock star guy would get angrier every time until he eventually left.then the pink ones go "do do do do" then it shows kermit backstage working when the phone rings.he picks it up ans says to the pink guys "it's for you" then he gives it to them and you hear "mah nuh mah nuh!".
    then kermit looks at the audience and his face looks completley out of place.that was indeed funny.

    Yep! I gots that on mah computer!

    I think that's Kermit's "sheesh" look. Totally classic! My sister laughs her butt of whenever she sees that! Hahahaha~!

    Even friends at school know what mahna mahna is because of me, and I go up to them and say "Don't be such a Mahna Mahna!"
    and they always laugh! It's too good to pass up =)

    The question is "What is a Mahna Mahna?"

    could that be the reason he says "mah na mah na"?

    Questioning his own existence, a very interesting thought.

    Regardless, I love this skit. It is among my favorite of the funny Muppet moments. The best part of it is it's always coming back for more without losing the charm it originally had, like in the Sandra Bullock episode of "Muppets Tonight" or the Muppet show live (which I sadly didn't attend.)

    What Ilove about Kermit is that he's very simplely make. He's basically a glove with eyes (not my words, it's from Of Muppets and Men). This means that Jim (or Nowadays, Steve) can crumple their hands up and make Kermit look disgusted. No other Muppet has that simplicity, therefore Kermit has more expression than the others.

    Re: Mah Nah Mah Nah

    Great link! I knew I'd seen "Mahna Mahna" in another sketch... "Fat Cat Sat Hat." Thanks!

    Yes according to the website, it was done on Ed Sullivan, Sesame Street, the Muppet Show, and Muppets Tonight.

    Never done in Fraggle Rock or the Jim Henson hour. It would be interesting to see Mahna Mahna amongst the Fraggles.

    Let me propose to Henson and Associates this Proposition M; that heretofore, every Muppet Series should work a Mahna Mahna version into one episode for the sake of future generations.

    Or how about developing a series around Mahna Mahna with his own little world populated by Snowths and those pointed head guys with the glasses. Hmmm.

    BorkBork Well-Known Member

    hmm i wonder what he is trying to say...

    to me it's like this: he tries to say something, but the snowths doesn't understand...in fact...no-one does. And it's very obvious that he gets frustrated, so he slams the door in the end.

    i think i know,notice when he like sings something other than "mahna mahna" like a grunt they ignore him,so he tries desperatley to say somethin else...............

    I dunno if Mahna Mahna series would work because Mahna and the pointy-haired guys have a retro 60s feel to them. Keep Mahna as he is but give him freakier counterparts to deal with (That fuzzy bug-eyed koozebanian from Muppets Tonight is a good example.) and you have the most surreal family show of all time.
