Somewhere I did a list of all the Beatles references I could find. Here's the link to it:

(6.39 - Fuzzy is described as 'The Shy one who provides the rock' - this is how George was described.)


I thought it was Ringo

There something missing... Jude said to the monkey that she would never "play piano song, play piano songs"...

Harb83 Apr 24, 2009 12:26 AM

That's the phoenetic 'Michelle' reference. Someone said about it a little further up the thread. :)

Looks like I missed a few (timing for the vid link just above)...

5.58 - Him says "I should have known better."

6.00 - Mojo Jojo says "Better run for your live's if you can, little girls."

6.12 - Princess says "You say stop but I say go, go, go."

6.20 - Fuzzy says "I'm going to let you down and leave you flat."

6.25 - Background music sounds a lot like it's parodying "You Really Got a Hold on Me".

6.50 - The background music is the building up in 'A Day in the Life'.

7.09 - As Sargeant Pepper makes his 'Help' speech, the background music is parodying the song 'Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band'.

7.32 - "Who would make a stupid documentry about the Beat Alls anyway." Possibly referring to the Rutles since the reporter is identical to Eric Idle's character...?

7.49. As Prof. Utonium speaks out the words to Yesterday, the same style song plays in the background.

8.26 - During Prof. Utoniums speech the background music parodies "For No One".

8.49 - The last bar of the background music sounds a lot like 'Martha My Dear'.

8.55 - Is the background music parodying "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"?

10.16 - The background music parodies "The Ballad of John and Yoko"

10.43 - A reference to John's "Primal Screaming"?

11.30 - Background music is parodying Ringo's drum solo in 'The End'.

11.49 - Fuzzy says "Cry, babies, Cry."

12.03 - Fuzzy says "See how they fly" - a possible reference to Lady Madonna (See how they run).

12.10 - The Powerpuff Girl says "They're going nowhere, man."

12.17 - The streetsign behind Mojo says "Penny Lane."

12.17 - The building to their left says "Corp."... Possibly a reference to Apple Corp?

12.23 - Imagine on the newspaper is of the half-shadowed Beatles a-la Meet / With the Beatles.

13.30 - "Some day monkey won't play piano song. Play piano song." A phoenetic englishised line from the song Michelle (Son't les mont qui vont tres bient ensemble.)

13.38 - Time for a Beat Alls reunion...

At the end the background music plays the final ever-lasting chord from A Day in the Life.

88 references counted so far!

mluque125 Apr 24, 2009 07:24 AM

The "see how they fly" reference could also refer to I Am the Walrus. The lines "see how they fly like lucy in the sky, see how they run" or "see how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly".

McCartneyGirl909 Apr 24, 2009 05:14 PM

I think another reference is the background music when Mojo was finding out who did the performance crime. It sounds like the guitar in 'Something'.

McCartneyGirl909 Apr 24, 2009 05:24 PM

Him declares, "Oh no!"

- a lyric in I've Got a Feeling.

I saw the powerpuff girls episode when they had the beatles references in it. It was funny watching it.

As does Mojo when he actually quotes a few lines from it. :wink3:

Incidentally, if anyone has the DVD of this episode, Mojo does a commentary on it with even more Beatle references!

I remember watching that cartoon when I was a kid and Meet the Beat Alls was my favorite episode :)
I found it on YouTube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMQvIcVvwK4

SweetDearMartha Jul 05, 2016 09:02 AM

Actually when Fuzzy said see how they fly, think he was referring to I Am The Walrus
