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.
