Dr. Teeth character jug produced in Korea by Sigma The Tastesetter of Garden City, New York, circa 1990. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem or simply the Electric Mayhem is a Muppet musical group that debuted on the pilot for The Muppet Show in 1975. They are the house band for The Muppet Show, with personalities and appearances inspired by prominent real-life rock music and jazz performers. Dr. Teeth is the lead singer, keyboardist and gravelly-voiced leader of the band. He is green-skinned and red-haired with a large grinning mouth of teeth including a gold tooth supposedly fashioned by melting down his gold records. He sports a scruffy red beard with no mustache, a fur vest, a striped shirt and a floppy purple top hat. His self-introduction in The Muppet Movie was typically grandiose: "Golden teeth and golden tones. Welcome to my presence." Jim Henson based the character on New Orleans musician Dr. John.
