"Tri" Famous Trios Challenge (3^3 codes!)

Tri --the threeky-deeky arcade game from Tricochet (awarded 5 stars by TouchArcade community member Lord Gek!)-- is about to be updated to version 1.0.1 in the App Store. (A "lite" version --Try Tri-- will also be available for free.)




With promo codes for version 1.0 doomed to expire, I've decided to hold a tri-riffic little contest:


"POST A TRIO, GET A PROMO"
UPDATE: THE CHALLENGE HAS ENDED!

Post a list of the members of a famous trio, and I'll PM you one of twenty-seven (that's the third power of three!) promo codes.


Terms:
  • Codes are only valid in US iTunes App Store
  • The trio must be "famous". (I need to recognize it or be able to verify that the individuals are usually associated with each other. Please be sure to explain your submission (eg, "The Marx Brothers").)
  • The trio must involve "people" (including fictional characters, who may or may not be human); I'm not interested in conceptual trios (eg, "morning, noon, night").
  • If multiple people submit the same trio, priority goes to the first submitter of the trio.
  • Simple variants of a trio (eg, different triples of Charlie's Angels) don't count. I'm looking for originality here!
  • Please post only one trio at a time, so as not to lock out later submitters. (Feel free to PM me if you have extra trios. I'm always looking for more.)
  • The following trios are already taken:

    Sabrina, Kelly, Jill ("Charlie's Angels")
