Quote from: 1333
Does anyone remember the episode of The Simpsons (it's probably over 10 years old) when Homer became part of a 4-piece band that paralleled the Beatles?  I could be wrong but I think the band was Homer, Flanders, Moe the bartender and Barney (the barfly who's always burping).

Yeah, the B-Sharps! I love that episode! Perfect. They even kicked out Chief Wiggum a la Pete Best! So great. Mo wasn't in the band though, it was: Homer, Apu, Chief Wiggum and Principal Skinner. Chief Wiggum was then replaced by Barney. "Wiggum forever, Barney never!"  ;D

Absoulutely Fabulous did that episode called  "Schmoozin" at  Abbey Road where they sang over the lost Beatles tapes , that was very funny .

Eddy came out with the line about Yoko " You Can't tell where the hair ends and the pubes begin " (jumping)

There was one in That 70s Show were Jackie and Hyde got together and Eric was talking to Jackie saying that they couldn't stay together and said "because you're breaking up the band, Yoko!" haha!

Also there was something in family guy about ringo's songwriting:

edit - also I remember one in 30 Rock where Jack d.'s girlfriend is talking to Liz saying "You know how John Lennon was better than the rest of the Beatles but didn't realize it until he met Yoko? Well I'M Jack's Yoko!"
Liz: "You WANT to be Yoko?!?"
haha

Okay, through an amazing spiral through YouTube I ended up watching some Weird Al Yankovic clips. He spoofs the Beatles several times in his music: "Pacman" for "Taxman", "Chicken Pot Pie" for "Live and Let Die", "Hey Jude" set to polka music, etc.

However, I just saw the following shout out in his 2000 "Millennium" VH-1 show (hiding in his underground bunker because the world was ending), and the Beatles are not forgotten when he's packing his Y2K survival kit:

OK, Hari, listen closely. Youtube is just the Dark Side, cleverly packaged and marketed. Repeat after me ... I will put down the computer mouse for at least some time every hour. I will put down ...

Look, Alexis, I hear what you're saying. It's kind of you to worry. But I can quit any time I want to. Really. There's just one more series I need to watch. It's a ten-parter. And there's a four-parter after that. Two more series. And that's it! And then I can just walk away... after I play a few of my favorite clips.

I've just for the first time seen the original (UK) version of The Office.  And Ricky Gervais's character has eerie similarities to Paul McCartney's characteristics, especially during the filming of Let it Be.

Here in the States, Target has been using their version of "Hello/Goodbye" for a while now...not the Boys, but somewhat cutesy and different.  I kinda like it.

In Ferris Buller's Day Off he is in that parade singing Twist and Shout.

There's not just the Twist and Shout scene in Ferris Buller, there's the scene when he's just got out of the shower he goes on about socialism and other -isms and he quotes the lyrics of "God" by John Lennon.
