The band in 1996.
From the "Best Man for the GOB" episode (4 Apr. 2004) of acclaimed television sitcom Arrested Development. Drug-promoting family folk trio featuring Tobias Fünke (David Cross) on vocals, Lindsay Bluth Fünke (Portia de Rossi) on vocals and autoharp, and 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).
