Over the Top is a band which played "ZZ Blues" on Sesame Street in 1986. Jerry Nelson performed the lead singer while David Rudman puppeteered the drummer.[1]

Although there are three members, the band is made up of two Anything Muppet patterns, Green and Lavender.

The band's look, name, and song are a parody of the band ZZ Top.
