The Callisto cuddle sponge was a bizarre alien creature used to attack the protagonist of the Philip K. Dick novel Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said. The creature was depicted on at least one version of the cover for this novel.

Every week the Jason Taverner show served up a mixture of popular celebrities, talk, and music. The host was one of the world's most popular celebrities, or at least he was on October 11, 1988. But after Taverner and Hart finished performing on the show that night, Taverner received an urgent call from a jilted lover named Marilyn Mason. Lured to her apartment, he ended up attacked by Mason, using a Callisto cuddle sponge.

Apparently the Callisto cuddle sponge knocked the famed Taverner into a parallel world where nobody knew his name.
