How many movies/tv shows can you think of that have something to do with The Beatles
 
time to close the other topic and open a new one, it was over 20 pages. Carry on!

In the MST3K movie "The Creeping Terror, there is a scene with rocky mountains and Crow begins to sing "Rocky Raccoon".

Well Stephen Colbert made 2 Beatle references recently. In one he was calling someone a 5th Beatle (about somebody who really didnt have anything to with them) I think it went "whom I'll always remember as the 5th Beatle" and another where he said "The only way to make money in today's economy is to divorce Paul McCartney"

The Flintstones' 1965 episode, "Shinrock" (spoof of Shindig) had some Beatle haircut bands and spoofed on the Beatles.

The Beau Brummels, whom I never liked were satirized as "The Beau Brummelstones" (really original there) and another 1965 episode was about the 4 Insects, definitely a Beatle spoof. They sang, "She said yeah, yeah, yeah" and everybody in the show wore a Beatle wig or, a few minor characters had Beatle coiffure. The 4 Insects were playing at the World's Fair (next door to Shea Stadium).

You just can't dodge that Beatle influence!

lennonluvr9 Jul 08, 2008 05:36 AM

Yep, that episode was called The Hatrocks and the Grusomes. The Flintstones were trying to get rid of the Hatrocks who had overstayed their welcome as houseguests and enlisted the help of the Grusomes (who were themselves spoofs of fams like the Addams Family and the Munsters). The Hatrocks were hillbillies from Arkanstone who hated 'bug music' and so the Flintstones and Grusomes sang songs by the 4 insects to get rid of them. Yeah....i'm a little bit of a Flintstone nerd.

VersusBatman Jul 08, 2008 07:29 AM

I remember that episode.

Loony_leo Jul 17, 2008 07:34 AM

There was an episode of Law and Order Criminal Intent, where this one graphic designer killed his collaborator's girlfriend because he was jealous of all the time they were spending together. And the main detective made a comparrison to John Paul and Yoko. It made me happy :teeth1:

lennonluvr9 Jul 26, 2008 05:17 AM

Another mention in Timon & Pumbaa. They're in this Western town trying to pose as outlaws to this gang who is missing their leader for some reason. They quiz Timon & Pumbaa on their leader's interests to prove whether or not they are who they say they are. Examples include "Paper? Or Plastic?" "Timon? or Pumbaa?" Well at one point they ask "The Beatles? Or Elvis?"

beatlebangs1964 Jul 30, 2008 05:32 PM

Family Guy's "Ready, Willing & Disabled" had Stewie saying "what he did to John Lennon," and showed John and Yoko meeting one another.

lennonluvr9 Aug 01, 2008 05:26 AM

Yeah! That was hilarious! "Fess up! Fess up or I'll do to you what I did to John Lennon" And they didnt do too bad a job drawing John either :wink1:

lennonluvr9 Aug 26, 2008 05:56 AM

Okay so it wasnt a tv show but it was on TV. During the closing ceremony of the Olympics they had 2 chinese kids who were drumming and the commentators said the one kid had a Ringo Starr haircut and perhaps it was an allusion to passing the torch to Britain since the Beatles were from England.

I couldnt get a good look at it from the angles they were shooting at but I highly doubt that was the point of this kid's haircut. Whatever! It was still amusing to hear from someone like Bob Costas, lol!

beatlebangs1964 Sep 07, 2008 05:21 PM

There is a show with an episode entitled "You Say It's Your Birthday," but I cannot think of which show. There is a show entitled "Dear Prudence." You just can't dodge that Beatle influence, yeah, yeah, yeah!

lennonluvr9 Sep 08, 2008 06:12 PM

This Hallmark Channel movie that's airing this month is called Dear Prudence

beatlebangs1964 Sep 28, 2008 07:47 AM

The movie Ghost Town features the song "I'm Looking Through You." I saw a commercial for it the other day.

lennonluvr9 Oct 04, 2008 05:36 AM

Yeah the trailer does. Doesnt mean it'll be in the movie though. I remember a trailer for this movie where Tom Hanks has to live in an airport (cant remember the name) that had "End of the Line" in it, but it wasnt in the actual movie.

beatlebangs1964 Feb 07, 2009 10:46 PM

Little Manhattan, a 2005 movie about young love has a cover of "In My Life."

OzBeatleFan Feb 09, 2009 07:57 PM

The Wiggles (hope most people know who they are??) released a new dance DVD last year, sorry but can't remember what it's called. The guys all have Beatle wigs and wear Beatle "suits" (the collarless suits). Each Beatle suit is in the colour which each Wiggle wears eg. Anthony the blue Wiggle wears a blue Beatles suit, Murray the red Wiggle wears a red suit and so on.

It's amazing to think that a band from the 1960's can still influence a new generation 40 years later. Even if that generation is currently 2 to 6 years old!!

lennonluvr9 Feb 26, 2009 07:45 AM

Omg....brings new life to the term "Australian Beatles" At least, I think that's what they've been called

I can't remember if I've heard that, but it wouldn't surprise me. They have millions of fans around the world, sell heaps and albums DVD's etc and currently the highest earning entertainers in Australia. Concert tickets sell out in minutes. Sounds familiar doesn't it??

Does anyone remember the first Sister Act starring Whoopi Goldberg. At the start of the movie, young Delores is in school and the class is asked by their nun teacher, "Who can name all the disciples?" She puts her hand up and says,"John, Paul, George and Ringo." Then she is ordered to write the disciples names on the board and she writes: John, Paul, George, Ringo. Love it.

beatlebangs1964 Mar 03, 2009 04:28 PM

Beverly Hills 90210 had an episode titled "Hello, Goodbye" and another titled "Baby, You Can Drive My Car." Guess old Aaron was a Paul fan. :smile1:

george_on_cloud9 Mar 04, 2009 04:47 AM

The Powerpuff Girls with an episode related to the Beatles

lennonluvr9 Mar 06, 2009 05:32 AM

Okay, so a couple days ago on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Jon was showing Obama talking about having the troops out by September. Then Jon had a bunch of virtual balloons coming down and started singing and playing "Happy Xmas", the "War is Over" part. Until Jon realized Obama still wants to keep about 35000 soldiers there after August. :tongue1:

In the original Batman series in the 60's, as Adam West (Bruce Wayne) went to answer the BatPhone, Burt Ward (Dick Grayson) was busy pounding away at a drum set. Adam West said something like, "Cool it Ringo!"

Another Family Guy mention in a cut scene, Ringo comes up to the rest of the band in the studio and says something like "Hey Guys ook at this song I wrote" and Paul says "You know what I'm gonna put this right here, right on the refridgerator so we can see it everyday." then Ringo says "Alright"

Slightly mean but I couldn't help but laugh.

lennonluvr9 Mar 07, 2009 05:33 AM

I know right? I felt kinda bad too, but it was funny :laugh1:

lennonluvr9 Mar 12, 2009 05:25 AM

Steven Colbert has still been mentioning his interview with Paul. A few days ago he had a singer on and explained to her what the Colbert Bump was. "I had this guy on named Paul McCartney, and he came on my show, and now he's HUGE"

Tuesday he also made a reference to the Paul is Dead thing. He saw this article about how drinking a lot of coffee apparently makes you more apt to see ghosts. Steven didnt believe it at first until he realized "What a minute! What about my interview with Paul McCartney?? How could I have done that if...he's...dead! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!"

I laughed at that too. Poor Ringo!

Cold Case will be showcasing John Lennon music on this Sunday's (March 22) episode.

Haha, yeah, good stuff.
I think it starts when Peter says "That's as much of a waste as Ringo writing a song!" Or something along those lines.

Kait_Sing Mar 29, 2009 02:33 AM

Some other old shows
 
There was an episode of the Munsters where the Standells performed "I Want to Hold Your Hand".

On the Addams Family episode, Lurch the teenage idol, a record producer tells the family, "Lurch will be bigger than the Beatles".

mluque125 Apr 20, 2009 04:24 PM

They were mentioned in the Hannah Montana Movie. These kids were trying to raise money for something and this guy goes "you'll only make enough money if The Beatles show up...oh wait, there's a problem".

lennonluvr9 Apr 21, 2009 05:27 AM

They've even gotten to Hannah Montana? Aww geez. :wink3: There was a similar reference in the Josie & The Pussycats movie-

Wyatt (the manager)- Groups with the word 'and' in their name are much more successful that groups without it
Valerie- But what about the Beatles? or the Rolling Stones? or the Backstre-
Wyatt- yes! yes, yes, alright, if you want to split hairs, yes!

and there was another mention of them later in the movie when the band broke up-

Alexander- They're gone Josie! No more band! Broken up! Just like the Beatles! or a flock of birds....

mluque125 Apr 21, 2009 03:21 PM

I've spotted so many references to them in T.V. shows, movies. I can't think of them all now but I will and post it.

bearkat77 Apr 21, 2009 04:32 PM

In the movie "Riding The Bullet", the lead actor's girlfriend gives him two tickets to see John Lennon and The Plastic Ono Band in Toronto.

mluque125 Apr 22, 2009 03:47 PM

Definitely Maybe they mention Lennon and McCartney being good together.

lennonluvr9 Apr 25, 2009 05:40 AM

Stephen Colbert made a mention to Yoko on his show last week. He was talking about his upcoming Persian Gulf trip and he cant say where exactly he'll be. So he took a map of Pangea, and put a thumbtack in it to show where he'd be. Then he said "This is of course, before the continents broke apart" Then he shook his fist and shouted "Yoko!!!"

lennonluvr9 May 04, 2009 05:23 AM

Stephen's been mentioning the Beatles quite a lot. He had the Decemberists on his show and they were talking about how complicated their folksy lyrics can be. The topic of British artists came up and Stephen said something like, "Well what about the Beatles? You know 'Why Dont We Do It In The Road?'. Now that's straightforward"

beatlebangs1964 May 04, 2009 06:09 PM

On the show "Airline," there is a 2005 episode about an L.A. based Beatle cover band, "Backbeat Beatles" who get delayed in Houston en route to do a show in Harlingen.

The episode is called "A Hard Day's Flight." Interesting thing, in this post 9/11 world that there was this rude pain in the ass woman and an equally boorish man screaming and acting a fool because their plane was delayed. Damn, don't blame the reservation clerk! The only thing you can do is chill, maybe go on standby and hope you get a seat. The last place anybody would want to be seen acting a fool is at an airport, what with all that's taken place since 9/11/01!

lennonluvr9 May 09, 2009 05:10 AM

I'm know this isnt where Pixar got it from, but, in Toy Story the company Andy's mom uses when they move is called Eggman Movers. It does always make me think of Walrus, even though I'm almost certain they got it from somewhere else.
