Rock band mentioned in passing in the "Cave Family Swingers" episode (05 Feb 1967) of lowbrow high-concept TV series It's About Time. Imagine Gilligan's Island, only instead of being stuck on an island, you're stuck back in time with cavemen. That's the premise of this sitcom, also created by Sherwood Schwartz. When the astronauts get rescued, the cave family sneaks aboard with them, coming back to the present day.

Thanks to the machinations of a neighbor/talent agent, "The Cave Family Swingers" become a band with a hit record. In a joke on silly band names, astronaut protagonist Hector (Jack Mullaney) mentions that this is his favorite group, especially Morris. He also likes Harry Hands and His Four Fingers and Dick the Dentist and His Four Cavities.
