Great Googly Moogly predates Frank's use of it. Supposedly it was originally from a Howlin' Wolf song. Frank dug HW as a teen so I'm sure that's where he got it from.

I have a business client who sometimes says, "Well, that's the crux of the bisquit." He doesn't know it's a Zappa thing though. :)

Odds are that it was Chris Berman, but you never know with those wacky guys.

There was a show I used to watch as a little kid called "Maggie and the Ferocious Beast", and the Beast's catchphrase was "Great googly moogly" :mrgreen:
