Beauty and the Electric Tentacle is a level in the video game World of Goo. It is the ninth level of Chapter 2. In this level, player must use Water Goo and Balloon Goos to help the Beauty Goo reach the pipe located underground at the bottom right side.
The Beauty Goo can be bumped with one of the smaller Goo Balls by using the Goo throwing method. This enables the Beauty Goo to move over the pit right into the gears with no moves or use of Goo Balls. Additionally, with the extensive use of the whistle and Goo manipulation, this level can be completed with maximum of 38 Goo Balls and 1 move.
There is an easter egg in this level. Make the Beauty Goo go backwards off of the line. She will fall down an invisible pathway with very strong airflow and explode in an invisible tube. The Goos will fall down onto ground below the boundary line. There will be a complicated drawing of a Goo Ball shown on the wall. Click on the sign and it will read:

As stated above, the Beauty Goo is bumpable as another way to get it to the other side, although that's really hard to pull off. Just do your best not to put too many Balloons on the left side of the Beauty Goo.
To start, take 10 Water Goos over to the right side of the level, and drop them in the hole. Use the ones you have left to the best of their ability. Always make sure to have at least one if not two Balloons attached to the very right side of your line to give the Beauty Goo something to roll off of.
The level name is a parody of the Disney movie, “Beauty and the Beast”
