The Nairobi Trio was a skit created by Ernie Kovacs for television. It consists of musicians in ape masks performing Robert Maxwell's "Solfeggio" in the manner of wind-up toys.

An homage to the sketch is present in Hey Cinderella! at the prince's ball. They are seen several times in quick cutaway shots from the ongoing plot.

Jim Henson, Jon Stone and Jerry Nelson play the masked musicians.
