Default 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!

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.

The 1965 Doctor Who story "The Chase" features The Beatles singing "Ticket To Ride" (performance footage shot for Top of the Pops).

It's a well-known fact (in Doctor Who circles) that The Beatles were originally to appear as old men in the story, however, this idea was vetoed by Brian Epstein and the performance footage was used instead.

More details about "The Chase" can be found here:

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

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?"

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

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.

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.

Default 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".

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!

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!

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

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.
