The Great Gazoo appears in The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, as well as the arcade game Fred Flintstone's Memory Match. In “Pavement”, an episode of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, the Great Gazoo makes a cameo appearance. After being introduced, he says the catchphrase “Toodle-loo, dum-dums!” and disappears. The Great Gazoo had a major role in the second live-action film, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, which was a prequel, where he is played by Alan Cumming. Instead of being sent to Earth as punishment, he has to study humanity's mating habits because he is the most expendable of his people. In this appearance, he is portrayed in more positive tone as a supporting protagonist who serves as an ally to Fred and Barney. The Great Gazoo appears in the video game, The Flintstones: Bedrock Bowling. Harvey Korman returned to voice him for this game. Charlton Comics published a comic book focusing on the character. The title ran for 20 issues, from August 1973 through January 1977. The Great Gazoo is also referenced in The Simpsons episode “The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase”, a metafictional episode looking at alleged future developments in the series that would never come to pass, which include Ozmodiar, a floating green alien that only Homer could see. Ozmodiar eventually appeared (twice) in The Simpsons episode “HOMR”. The Great Gazoo (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) appears in the Family Guy episode “Wasted Talent”. Gazoo also appeared in a sketch about Fred and Barney trying to enter a (present-day) nightclub in Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy. Gazoo also made a cameo appearance in the Looney Tunes short Duck Dodgers in: Attack of the Drones starring Daffy Duck. The Great Gazoo is mentioned in the novel Triggers, by Canadian author Robert J. Sawyer. Culture writer Nathan Rabin theorizes that Marlon Brando's late career was heavily influenced by The Great Gazoo advising him. The Great Gazoo appears in the 2017 DC comic book series “The Flintstones”. In this appearance, he is human-sized and does not float, and was sent by bookie aliens to evaluate the human race.
