not only a film monster but also a poodle

There is an entire wiki on Frank Zappa. This delights me. There is no end to the detail, commentary and sheer frolic in Zappa's lifework.

Plus, he did some pretty great riffs on poodles. Including the family pet called Fruney that morphed into Frunobolax, the unstoppable monster of the song "Cheepnis." Some lyrics...

Ladies and gentlemen,
The monster,
Which the peasants in this area call FRUNOBULAX
(Apparently a very large poodle dog)
Has just been seen approaching The Power Plant
Bullets can't stop it
Rockets can't stop it
We may have to use NUCLEAR FORCE!

What's the point? Well to know that, you should read this Zappa Wiki article about old, rather shoddily made monster movies...
