John Lennon said they were "like the Marx Brothers".

Modern ReferencesEdit

Note the fantastic reworking of the "Sgt Pepper Cover", replacing the Beatles with the Monkees.  On the original, the 4 wax figures of the Beatles in suits appeared as well.

A mashup video includes "I'm a Believer" under the Beatles singing "Paperback Writer".  Ironically enough, Boyce & Hart credit that song fading out on their radio and mishearing the lyrics.  They thought it sounded like something about a train.  And then they wrote "Last Train". (Listen for the similarity next time!)
