A disembodied tentacle is accidentally exposed to nuclear waste, giving it human abilities and an ambition to take over the world.
During the intro movie, Hoagie says he needs the hamster for the band, so they can bite its head off. This is a reference to the infamous Black Sabbath concert where Ozzy Osbourne bit off the head of a pigeon.
Bernard: Dr. Fred!
Dr. Fred: What have you done this time, you meddling milquetoast? Now Purple Tentacle is free to use his evil mutant powers to take over the world, and ENSLAVE ALL HUMANITY!
Hoagie finds dry spaghetti in the Colonial-era mansion kitchen. Italian cuisine did not make it to the United States until the 19th century. Therefore, it's highly unlikely someone would have pasta in their kitchen around this time.
At the end of the credits, the Lucasarts logo is seen. Then a golden tentacle hops over, scares off the golden man and takes his place.
