Listen to ‘Mah Na Mah Na’ from 9-1-1: Lone Star, Season 3, Episode 7, “Red vs Blue”

That fun, incredibly upbeat song that played on the Fox procedural drama 9-1-1: Lone Star last night  — 9-1-1: Lone Star, Season 3, Episode 7, “Red vs Blue”– was, of course, the same song many of us grew up hearing and loving — ‘Mah Na Mah Na‘ from the massively popular kids’ show The Muppets .

The track played on last night’s 9-1-1: Lone Star is the remastered version of the song from the 2011 musical film The Muppets.

And yep, it is still as happy-sounding as it always was.

Interestingly, the original version of the song was composed by Italian composer Piero Umiliani for a film called Sweden: Heaven and Hell.

The song became a massive international hit, though, after it was used on The Benny Hill Show in the UK.

And, of course, on now-iconic children’s show The Muppets in the United States.

In slightly different version on both shows.

Listen to ‘Mah Na Mah Na‘ from 9-1-1: Lone Star below, because didn’t that add a cool, fun vibe to last night’s episode?

And, of course, watch 9-1-1: Lone Star every Monday on Fox.
