The Leprechaun Brothers in Muppets Inside

The ABCs

The Leprechaun Brothers are a singing group made up of Animal, Beaker, and the Swedish Chef. None of them are particularly skilled with the English language, so they tend to mangle their songs.

The trio appeared on The Muppet Show in episode 520, where they sang "Danny Boy."

The group later reappeared in the "Scope That Song" mini-game for the Muppets Inside video game in 1996. The trio or some times duo or solo would "sing" public domain songs - such as "Camptown Races" and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" - and the player was done, for they always sung at the end of the game.

In later years, the three singers continued to perform together. They sang in two viral videos - performing "Habanera" and "Carol of the Bells". The trio also appeared together as judges on America's Got Talent and in a video sharing an unintelligible conversation in an elevator. (YouTube)

A faux-album cover displayed in Disney Cruise Line's Midship Detective Agency identifies the singing trio as "The ABCs" (standing for Animal, Beaker, and Chef). The album boasts the tagline: "Because 'ABC' spells 'FUN'!"

The trio re-teamed in Lady Gaga & the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular for their unique interpretations of the holiday classics "Deck the Halls" and "Jingle Bells".
