244. “Actually looks like Jimmy Carl Black, doesn’t he.”

The episode:Undersea Kingdom pt. 2,” the short in front of “The Indestructible Man,” ep. 409

The riff: Observed by Servo during the intro to this serial where “Unga Khan,” the “mad tyrant of Atlantis” is pictured.

The explanation: Jimmy Carl Black was a drummer and vocalist for The Mothers of Invention, best known as the backing band for Frank Zappa during many of his major works. Their equipment was once destroyed in the casino fire immortalized by the Deep Purple song “Smoke on the Water.” Curiously, Black looks quite a bit at times like Zappa himself.

Novelty factor: This will hurt my boss deep inside his soul, but I’ve never heard of Jimmy Carl Black before.
