It makes sense that they would have Beatle references in That 70's Show  8)

^Well of course!
What I don't get is why there was a showing of the That '70s Show Christmas special in the middle of August.

I'm not sure if anyone's mentioned this yet.  In the commercials on CBC for Little Mosque On The Prarie they're spoofing Beatlemania.  (They spoof the Meet The Beatles, AHDN movie, Help! and Abbey Road, that I've picked up on)

Ooh, I just remembered something.
Has anyone ever heard of a cartoon series called Doug? It's a 90's cartoon I used to watch when I was younger
(looks like this: )


Doug's favourite band was called The Beets, which is a reference to the Beatles :). They even had an album called Let It Beet ;D Apparently they had a "somewhat Scouse accent", but back then my English wasn't good enough to pick that up (lol)

I just remembered something!
I was watching this five-part special called "101 Most Unforgettable SNL (Saturday Night Live) Moments" and there was a couple clips that were Beatles related.

One of them was with Ringo and Barbara drinking tea with... someone and the someone person was hitting on Barbara. Ringo just sat there watching and being all quiet.

The other clip was with Chris Farley and Paul. Chris was "interviewing" Paul, and Charis thought he was doing bad, so he hit himself. You could tell that Paul was on the verge of cracking up.

A new movie coming out later this year.......starring Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino.......I can't remember the name but they play a couple of "old" NYC cops, I think, and DeNiro has a line in the trailer of the movie, "we're like Lennon and McCartney"..............

In the show Full House, Jesse, Danny, and Joey were talking about putting Becky in Jesse's band, but Jesse doesn't want her in the band. After hearing what Jesse had to say, Danny says, "Well, you could give her a tambourine and stick her in the back like Paul McCartney did with Linda."

Ringo and Barbara were 'guests' on Fernando's Hideaway in 1984.  "Fernando Lamas" was Billy Crystal, and of course his famous catchprase was "You Look Mah-velous," which at the time was nearly as overplayed as "Where's the Beef?"

And Paul was a 'guest' on The Chris Farley Show (probably circa 1993).  Farley would ask his guests the most simplistic, childlike questions:  "Hey Paul, you 'member.... when you were in the Beatles?"  Paul:  "Yes."  Chris:  "That was awesome!..... You said 'In the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.  I always wondered.... is that true?"  Paul:  "I've always found it to be so."  (At this point Chris is bouncing on his chair, becoming ecstatic in the moment.)

I remember one in Sabrina, when she was playing a cross-word puzzle and she mentions that she's looking for Ringo's nose and she says it shouldn't be that hard to find. Also in Still Standing that blond girl was on a date with this guy who didn't care for the beatles, and she says why don'tou like them they had like 100 hit songs, lol. Then she starts mentioning some of them.
