Jock Clouseau[1][2] is an Aquazone Aquanauts minifigure released in 1995.

Description

Jock Clouseau has a diving suit consisting of a white torso with blue printing; white hips and hands; bright blue legs; and black arms. His helmet is white with a transparent blue visor. His head is printed with black hair, eyebrows, and stubble, along with a red headband marked with the letter "C".[2] In 6104 Aquacessories, he is equipped with bright blue flippers.

Background

Jock Clouseau harvests Hydrolator Crystals with the crane at Neptune Discovery Lab. He also runs a chain of underwater sub shops serving kelp burgers (his favorite food), seaweed salad, plankton pizza,[1] and plankton pasta.[2] However, when invited over for holiday dinner, the rest of the Clouseau family does not think so highly of Jock's cooking and instead orders out for pizza.[3] Although his favorite sport is octopus wrestling, he still has not yet won a match.[1] He tends to speak in surfer slang, using words like "cowabunga" and "radical".[4]

Jock Clouseau, Captain Red Beard, Becky Blastinoff, and King Richard team up to deliver presents for the "Holly Jolly Holiday Helper" contest,[5] and are seen delivering presents throughout the November-December 1995 issue of LEGO Mania Magazine. In The Adventures of the LEGO Maniac, they are sledding down a hill when they are trapped in an avalanche. Jock tries to dig out and argues with Red Beard whether it will work. The LEGO Maniac reminds them to work together, and Jock adds his hydro-prop engine to their Super Sled.[4]

In the "LEGO Guess the Gift Contest", Jock, Dr. Cyber, the Admiral, and Ann Droid chipped in to purchase a vehicle for the LEGO Maniac. Thresher purchased the vehicle and gift-wrapped it, but would not tell the others what it is. Jock bets that it is the Crystal Explorer Sub.[6]

When Jock isn't harvesting hydrolator crystals with the Neptune Discovery Lab's crane, he's running a chain of underwater sub shops that feature kelp burgers, seaweed salad, and plankton pizza.

His favorite sport is octopus wrestling, but he hasn't won yet. "In my last match in Snowflake, Arizona, even with two arms tied behind its back, I still couldn't beat that critter," Jock says. But for Jock, nothing beats strapping on his oxygen tank, fins, and mask and cruising colorful coral reefs.

MEET AQUANAUT JOCK CLOUSEAU
Jock is an Aquanaut with a mission. He plans to open a chain of underwater sub shops that feature kelp burgers, seaweed salad, and plankton pasta. His favorite sport is octopus wrestling, but he hasn't won yet. "In my last match, even with two arms tied behind it's[sic] back, I still couldn't beat that critter," Jock says. But for Jock, nothing beats strapping on his oxygen tank, fins and mask and cruising colorful coral reefs for hydrolator crystals.

MEET AQUANAUT JOCK CLOUSEAU
Last year Jock invited the entire Clouseau family over for holiday dinner. When the family found out he was having sea slug stew, sea cucumber salad, and red algae appetizers, they ordered out for pizza. This year, Jock is whipping up a batch of plankton pasta, some shark fin soup, and crab cakes for the relatives.

Appearances

Notes

  • Jock Clouseau's name is a pun on the French name Jacques Clouseau. Although this may be a reference to the fictional character Inspector Jacques Clouseau, it may alternatively intended as a reference to the similarly-named Jacques Cousteau, a famous underwater researcher. Jock himself mentions Jacques Cousteau in The Adventures of the LEGO Maniac,[7] making it a likely connection.
  • Throughout the November-December 1995 issue of LEGO Mania Magazine, Jock Clouseau's appearance varies between two different Aquanaut minifigures: the one with the headband, and the one with red hair. While the red-haired Aquanaut is used in his profile[1] and various photos of him delivering presents for the "Holly Jolly Holiday Helper" contest, the headband-wearing Aquanaut is used on the front cover[8] and in the comic.[4] The November-December 1996 issue and various Shop At Home 1996 catalogs identify the headband-wearing Aquanaut as Jock without any ambiguity.[6][2][3]
    • Since the headband is marked with the letter "C", which may stand for "Clouseau", it can be assumed that the headband-wearing Aquanaut is more likely the correct Jock Clouseau.
