Dr. Fünke's 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band Solution
Drug-promoting family folk trio first appearing in the "Best Man for the GOB" episode (4 Apr. 2004) of acclaimed television sitcom Arrested Development.
- Tobias Fünke (David Cross) on vocals,
- Lindsay Bluth Fünke (Portia de Rossi) on vocals and autoharp,
- Mae "Maeby" Fünke (Alia Shawkat) on spoken-word side-effect descriptions.
See, Dr. Fünke's etc. etc. etc. is just a means of selling supplements: Zanotab (may cause dry mouth, hair loss, an overly alert feeling, and in some cases may diminish your sex drive) and Teamocil (a now-banned nutritional supplement that promotes feelings of teamwork... and decreases sex drive, reduces short-term memory, and causes sleepiness. But let's get one thing clear: it doesn't cause hallucinations). The group was underwritten by the Natural Life Food Company, a division of ChemGrow, an Allyn-Crane Acquisition, and part of the Squimm Group.
Teamocil makes a second appearance in the second-season episode "Switch Hitter" (first aired 16 Jan. 2005).
