Electric Mayhem

Updated on November 3, 2011

House Band for The Muppet Show

Electric Mayhem was the house band for The Muppet Show. They also appeared in several muppet movies and on several muppet albums.

They were certainly a cool bunch. With Dr. Teeth leading the band, Janice, Floyd, Zoot, and Animal preformed amazing numbers on their own, and memorable songs with renowned musicians.

The Muppets: Bohemian Rhapsody

Mr. Bassman

Janice

Guitar

As lead guitarist for The Electric Mayhem, the Muppet Show house band, Janice was one of the only female muppets to interact regularly with the bigshots of the show. Miss Piggy usually hogged the leading lady roles, but Janice is not a jealous woman. Janice was in a devoted relationship with Floyd Pepper, who played the bass, and though she often came off as the "ditzy blonde" this was not the case. Janice was smart and witty. She was sexy without trying to be - girly but fit right in with the guys. And, her laid back attitude is priceless.

Animal

Drums

Animal is a wild one. He has been an inspiration to millions of drummers worldwide. Animal really is (as his inner voice said) simply: sex, sleep, food, drums and pain.

Animal is Electric Mayhem's drummer, but he has also preformed many gigs on his own. His preforemance with Rita Moreno of Fever is classic.

Floyd cares for Animal, making sure he has what he needs and doesn't harm himself or anyone else.

"You don't mess with Animal. He eats glass, man." - Frank Oz

Electric Mayhem Performances

Zoot

Saxaphone

Zoot is the the balding, blue-haired saxophone player for the Electric Mayhem. He expresses himself mostly through music. Though he spoke more in the first few years of Electric Mayhem, he has become nearly non-verbal, which very few are cool enough to pull off.

A Few More Electric Mayhem Classics

Scooter

Manager

Scooter is the very friendly, boy next door kind, who never wanted to cause controversy. He liked to do his job and keep people happy. Very lovable!

In The Muppet Movie, Scooter was the road manager for Electric Mayhem. He graduated to this role after being gofer backstage on The Muppet Show.

Electric Mayhem Members Moonlighting on Their Own

Srgt. Floyd Pepper

Bass Guitar

Srgt. Floyd Pepper's name is an obvious reference to the Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, as does his jacket. The name 'Floyd', as well as his skin color, references the band Pink Floyd.

Floyd most often sings lead vocals, and he serves as and is Animal's handler.

Electric Mayhem Plays with Amazing Stars

Dr. Teeth

Keyboard

Lips

Trumpet

Lips came into Electric Mayhem late in the game, joining the group in the fifth and final season of The Muppet Show. He rarely spoke, and just stuck to the music.Lips also appeared as part of Electric Mayhem in The Great Muppet Caper, A Muppet Family Christmas, and The Muppet Christmas Carol.
