6 Extremely Funny Mana-Mana Videos

Mana Mana (AKA Mahna Mahna, Manamana and Mah Nà Mah Nà), is a funny little music number, written by an Italian musician Piero Umiliani. It originally appeared in the Luigi Scattini's Italian film Sweden: Heaven and Hell, but in the U.K. its most famous version was on the first episode of The Muppet Show.

In 1969, "Mana Mana" was performed on the The Ed Sullivan Show. In the same year, "Mana Mana" was performed on Sesame Street.

Other versions of the song include: a cover by the hard rock band Skin; A cover of the song was performed by Cake and titled "Mahna Mahna" - It was the opening track of the 2002 album For The Kids; An instrumental cover of the song was frequently used as background music in segments of The Benny Hill Show - and many more.
