En passant

We've had no shortage of Carnaval songs, and a running theme of chess, but Friske and Leontev manage not only to combine both themes:

but have set the russian themes and lyrics to a popular number from a french musical:

« les rois du monde »

(compare, both for form and content, to a more recent francophone number)

... then again, there's always the combination of algebraic notation and slapstick in the chess episode of "Masha and Medved":

"knight's move"
