Mark Mothersbaugh (character)
|Date of birth||18 May, 1950|
|First appearance||"The Mutants Are Revolting" (6ACV12)|
|Voiced by||Mark Mothersbaugh|
The mutated Mark Mothersbaugh is the result of a freaky accident which may have involved Lake Mutagenic water. In the 31st century, he is still the lead singer of Devo, a job he has kept at least part time since 1972, but has become a green octopus-like mutant with four eyes, whose DNA is 40% potato. Mothersbaugh participated in the Devolution Revolution of September of 3010 that officially granted the Sewer Mutants their freedom.
- He has a small umbrella (which is very similar to an energy dome) that he used to protect himself from the sewage wave.
- His four eyes may be a reference to the stereotypical school-yard insult "four eyes" applied to people with glasses, like him.
- "40% Potato" is likely a reference to how Devo fans are called "spuds", a term that also means potato
Leela: Beautiful mutants, please welcome... Devo! [Everybody cheers.]
Mark Mothersbaugh: Hello, Sewer City. [Everybody cheers.] As long-time mutants ourselves, we support your righteous struggle and will do anything we can for you.
Dwayne: Play "Whip It"!
Mark Mothersbaugh: No. [To a member of the band.] Play the other one.
[The band begins playing "Beautiful World".]
Dwayne: [After Mayor Poopenmeyer declares the Mutants free.] Are we not men now?
Mark Mothersbaugh: I'm 40% potato. But close enough.
