A cappella quintet playing the grand opening of the sketch and restaurant "3-D House of Beef" (11 December 1981) on the sketch comedy television series SCTV. They open at the restaurant of the title for real singer (and that episode's guest star) James Ingram.

They sing a medley of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," "Dreams," and "One Note Samba." Described as Count Floyd's (Joe Flaherty) cousins, they get booed and Floyd yanks them offstage.

Played by Juul Haalmeyer, Rick Moranis, Catherine O'Hara, Dick Blasucci, and Joe's real brother, Paul Flaherty.

Their name is a joke on real Canadian a cappella group The Nylons.
