Tenacious D (TV series) Edit
After playing open mic night, Jack welcomes fans to a Tenacious D t-shirt autograph signing at Captain Ed's Record's. Some years after his alleged career, Captain Ed is an older gentlemen, and appears to operate a fairly large record store in Los Angeles. He wasn't made aware of the t-shirt signing happening at his store. He tells Black and Gass that the rockstar dream isn't worth it and is "like believing in the Sasquatch". Therefore, when Black and Gass stumble across a Sasquatch after meeting Ed, they take recordings and a foot-print to show him, though he doesn't believe them.
- He appears very briefly at the end of the Fuck Her Gently (Music Video) in animated form as god, though doesn't speak.
