Doctor Teeth & the Electric Mayhem Band - Wild
rock and roll group on THE MUPPET SHOW/SYN/1976-81.
The band was a parody of the drug-taking, mind-blown
heavy metal musicians from the late 1960s. These musical leftovers from the
drug culture hung around The Muppet Show because it was a "good gig."
- Dr. Teeth (voice of Jim Henson), the group's leader who had very round
body and skinny arms. He was a piano player modeled after Elton "Don't
Shoot the Piano Player" John.
- Sergeant Floyd Pepper (voice of Jerry Nelson), a laid back
hipster/bass guitar player and the group's verbal representative
- Zoot (voice of Dave Goetz) an aging, burnt out saxophonist
- Animal (voice of Frank Oz), the band's drummer and throwback to a
hairy Neanderthal who bangs his drums and screams "WO-MAN" Animal like
- Janis (voice of Frank Oz), a stringy-blond-haired female guitar player
