Onion’s A.V. Club Give a Nod to Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.

Just thought this was a cute little review of the Muppet’s influence and reaction to kids’ taste in music, and naturally, it starts off with a brief overview on just how awesome Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem were (are?).

Beyond the obvious inspiration Keith Moon has on Animal’s behavior on and off stage, it is clear that the writers of the Muppet shows and movies were groovin’ on something more herbal than just good vibes when the Muppet Show house band features members with names like Janis, Floyd, and Zoot.

COME ON! Zoot! How many kids shows can claim they have references to the good Captain!? VERY FEW, I’ll tell you that much!
