I like the DVd.  But then I could watch the Beatles sleeping and be entertained!

Omg! I loved that skit! It was hillarious. I enjoyed when that girl grabbed the one boys hair, that was pretty great.

"You ladies, you who fear the smallest, monsterous mouse that walks the floor may now perchance both quake and tremble here, when Lion rough and wildest rage doth roar" and then the wimpy "arrr". Then the boys start making fun of him, and he's like "But know that I, one Ringo the drummer am, for if I were really a lion I wouldn't be making all the money I am today, would I?" That's classic, my favorite part of the whole thing. Oh that and "Thisbe, thisabe" "WHAT?!" John dressed up in the dress with the pig tails was great.

I first saw it after I and my sister had picked the 'Beatles around the World' DVD up on a sale, thinking it was just some low-quality filmed performances. Lo and behold, we couldn't believe our eyes when it opened with this skit! The whole thing is just so silly and over the top, but I laugh each and every time.

George: "All I want to tell you is this lamp is... the moon you see, you got it? I'm the man in the moon. This thornbush is my thornbush, and this doggie-woggie here is my dog. And if you don't shut up I'll give you a kick in the - "

John (to 'Pyramus'): "Not a word, not a word... (to audience) SHUDDUP! (Back again) Not a word."

That link did not work for me.  None of pictures at the top showed up.  I got the pictures from the sketch, but they would not play for me. 

Anybody else have a problem?

I LOVE that part. John is hysterical! I also love the face Paul makes when John is saying:

I just watched it again today!  I had to after reading all of these posts.  It still makes me laugh out loud.  Those guys in the audience are such punks. 

I definitely recommend buying whichever DVD you find that has this skit.  I have it on the "Fun with the Fab Four" DVD.  This one also has a lot of footage from foreign tv shows that I had never seen before.

[quote by=beatlegirl200 link=Blah.pl?b=films,m=1088395176,s=30 date=1089871132]Did you notice that every once in a while, some of the girls in the front row would reach out and (try to) touch a Beatle when they walked by?

I'm surprised some girl didn't run onstage and jump on one of them!! They were so cute.  One girl just puts her hand on Paul's arm at the end and keeps it there until he finally moves his arm away! Funny. By the way, Johns biceps looked great! That and his blacked out tooth! Very sexy!

I agree, but with my luck, I would have gotten thrown out of the studio.

Maccalvr, I agree about John's biceps, they did look great!!!

I couldn't find 'Fun With the Fab Four' but I saw the Pyramus and Thisbe sketch on the 'Beatles Around The World' DVD. I want to see that Midsummer's Night Dream sketch!

The Pyramus and Thisbe thing is the Midsummer's Night Dream sketch. They are two of the characters in the play. It's one of the acts from that play.
