* CommediaDellArte: Not a direct example of this genre, but most of the characters are decent matches to those stock characters:
** Frank-N-Furter has elements of both The Captain (obviously "not from around here," interested in AnythingThatMoves) and Pantalone (abusive of Eddie, his Arlecchino, hints of a relationship with Columbia.)
** The others are a bit of a stretch - presumably Rocky as the Pierrot, Magenta as the Brighella, and Dr. Scott as the Tartaglia.
%%** Brad and Janet are the Lovers.
%%** Eddie makes a passing Arlecchino.
%%** Columbia, fittingly, is a Colombina.
%%** The Criminologist is perfect as the Doctor.
%%** Riff Raff is a dead giveaway as the Pulcinella, hunchback and all.
