One of the surviving episodes of Sam and Friends.

Muppets: Moldy Hay, Hank and Frank, Kermit, Little Girl Muppet, Limbo (early prototype version)

Description: In a French village setting, Moldy Hay lip synchs to Stan Freberg's rendition of "C'est Si Bon," with Hank and Frank constantly missing their cues in the backup choir. Kermit makes a cameo appearance, giving them a signal.

The episode ends with a commercial for sponsor Esskay Meats, featuring an early version of Limbo (a moving mouth and two dots for eyes) in a little girl Muppet's mirror, explaining that Esskay Chicken is "the fairest chick of them all."

The classic skit "Mahna Mahna" was based on the same "one lead singer, two backups" principle.
