Sasquatch is a fictional character who appears in Tenacious D's TV series and Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. He is portrayed in both mediums by the actor John C. Reilly.

The Pick of Destiny

In the film, Black eats mushrooms and starts to hallucinate, and subsequently meets Sasquatch. The two hold hands, with Black becoming Sasquatch's son, 'Baby Sas'. The two sing and go down the 'Strawberry River', when in reality, Black is drowning in some form of river or lake. The two then start to fly, with Black on Sasquatch's back. Whilst air-borne, Black thinks that he has spotted 'The Pick of Destiny' and therefore reaches out to grab it, however, falls out of a tree and subsequently wakes up. The song sang is released on The Pick Of Destiny as "Papagenu (He's My Sassafrass)".
