"Eight Balls of Fur" is a Sesame Street song performed by Little Chrissy. In this number, a spoof of the rock and roll classic "Great Balls of Fire," Little Chrissy boisterously pounds the piano while the eight titular furballs dance. The piano takes increasing damage until it gets completely demolished by song's end. Little Chrissy casually asks "Nat" for the next piano to be brought in.
The balls of fur in this segment are performed using the Black Theater technique.
