Arrow Spanish Flea

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-_2QpbXMbw

This has nothing to do about anything......apart from Spainish in the title.

We are having a bit of debate in work regarding this Herb Albert song.

We all think it is from a 70's sit com or something but can not identify which programme.

I have trolled through the Internet and can see that it has been used in The Simpsons, Dating Game etc etc.

HELP!!!!!

A blast from the past! I remember it from the 60's. It might have been used in a later sit-com but it was definitely a hit in the Charts "in my day"!

I think it was on those cartoons with the ant eater and the dragon fly and pink panther.. I think. It was kind of when the ant eater was talking in between cartoons or something. I maybe totally wrong but brainstorming answers may come up with the correct one. Eventually.

... and I suddenly thought of the film "Casino Royale" (the 60's version with Peter Sellers, David Niven & Co). On checking, the music is fairly similar and played by Herb, to boot, but it wasn't that.
This is beginning to get on my nerves....
