    Not, I didn't care much for the episode "Moral Decay", but I DID thoroughly enjoy "Meet the Beat-alls", being a fan of the Beatle's music and all.



    I love how the writers and animators cleverly inserted song lyrics, song titles, and other refrences to the Beatles culture into this episode.



    And I especially enjoyed seeing a cameo by the Fab Four themselves!



    Beatles and Powerpuff girls fans alike should definetly watch this episode!
  • Beatles parody.

    Moral Decay: We all knew we were going to have a fierce Buttercup episode sometime this season. I like how they finally center it on one girl. This like the first time, this season. The tooth fairy. Hmm. Well I would of liked them to say the tooth fairy wasn't real but whatever.



    Meet The Beat Alls: I loved this episode! (or short) Well since I am a devoted Beatles fan, I really enjoyed this episode. I also like how they made the reference of Yoko breaking up the band. Writers are genius! This was a perfect way to close a season. Amazing how the villains teamed up like that!moreless
  • meet the beat all's spoliers alert!!!!!! (i actually like the beatles they are one of my favorite if not my favorite band)

    9.0
    meet the beat all's a big refrence to the band the beatles. they even have a refrence for yoko ono. they use names of the beatles songs all the time. like a monkey's name is micheal and a zoo keeper (i think) is name jude. at the begining they were deciding their name and one suggest the silver beatles which was a name they were going to use. they use song peaces in sentences like "you better run for you're life little girl" "and the beat all's had a ticket to ride" they also had a character from their movie "the yellow subarine" as a police officer. this episode shows the power puff's losing to four of the nitourias villains. fuzzy mo jo and i can't remember the other two names sorry.



    to quothe the mayour "the beat all's are on the roof they just won't let it be"

    and it i think his name is "i like you thank you on behalf of the group and we hope we passed the audition"

    and finally the last line delivered by the power puff girls "oh its like the song say's the love you take is equal to it's equal to. oh i forget it's by some dumb old band anyway's"moreless
  • Hilarious Beatles parody! One of the best PPG episodes!

    10
    Meet the beat-Alls: I've seen some shows have done Beatles parodies, but this episode is without a doubt one of the best ones out there. The writers for this episodes made a fantastic job including all the Beatles references in even the smallest details, like the background music, I think many people overlook most of them, but after doing some research I've caught up with more and more references and it's amazing. And I'm sure they had the older viewers in mind because many kids probably don't even know who The Beatles are, so it was cool to see this for us oldest fans. The plot itself is very clever, I like it a lot. The girls were pretty funny and so was the Professor, I loved when he was encouraging them to break up The Beat-Alls, with all those lines of Beatles songs! lol I also liked a line by Blossom at the end of the episode "You know like the song says...ah who cares, it's by one dumb ol' band anyways" haha. Overall, fantastic episode. Final Grade: A++



    (Moral Decay I don't remember enough to review so this review is just for Meet the Beat-Alls)moreless
  • Best Episode Ever!!!!

    10
    I don't recall seeing Moral Decay, so this entire review is based on Meet the Beat Alls. This episode was hilarious! The writers did such a good job with including all those Beatles references. One of my favorite scenes was when the Beat Alls were in a bed in the middle of an intersection. This parody was a mix of John and Yoko's bed-in, as well as the song "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" (notice Fuzzy asking, "Why are we doing this again?" See what I mean?). And yes, I loved Moko Jono breaking up the group. I liked everything about it. This episode deserves a 10 out of 10.moreless

      Him: The!
      Princess: Girls!
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: Get them!

    • Professor Utonium: Well, first you have to realize the Beat-Alls are just a rock band.
      Blossom, Bubbles, & Buttercup: (together) Huh?
      Professor Utonium: Fuzzy, he does that "rock" thing, you know, but that's not important.

    • Professor Utonium: It's okay, she'll be fine.
      Buttercup: But I'm really sorry!

    • Buttercup: Oh, I hate cleaning! What's the point? It will get dirty again!

    • Sgt. Pepper: Thank you. My name is Sergeant Pepper of the Townsville Police. As an inquest of my commanding officers, I would like to make a statement. (Clears throat) Help, we need somebody! Help! Not just anybody! Help, we need the Powerpuff Girls! Thank you.

    • Him: Did we just do what I think we did?
      Mojo Jojo: Yes. Individually we have failed time and again, but together we are victorious!
      Princess Morbucks: I propose we join forces and merge into one supervillain conglomerate!
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: Blossom? Bubbles? And Buttercup? We beat 'em? We beat all of 'em?
      Him: That's it! Oh, we will be known as the Silver Beat Alls!
      Mojo Jojo: No! Too fancy. We shall be known simply as... the Beat Alls!

    • Mojo Jojo: Will the people in the cheap seats please leave! And the rest of you, hand over your jewelry!

    • Fuzzy Lumpkins: I'm gonna let you down and leave you flat!

    • Princess Morbucks: You say stop, but I say go, go, GO!

    • Mojo Jojo: Better run for your lives if you can, little girls!

    • Mojo Jojo: Now, give me money! That's what I want!

    • Mojo Jojo: Look! Here, there, everywhere! I've got a feeling, a feeling deep inside, a feeling I can't hide. Oh, no!

    • Princess Morbucks: So, tell us again why we're only stealing toilet paper, light bulbs, milk, flour, and eggs.
      Mojo Jojo: Well, Moko's idea is that stealing items that are all white isn't against the law. So, it's okay to take them.
      Princess Morbucks: Huh?
      Mojo Jojo: It's all right 'cause they're all white!

    • Professor Utonium: What will the people of Townsville do when they look for the Girls with the sun in their eyes and they're gone?

    • (The Beat Alls are lying in a king-sized bed)
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: Uh... why are we doin' this again?
      Mojo Jojo: It's called "Annoyance Crime Number Nine." Our concept is this. Imagine all the people...
      (The bed is in the middle of an intersection, with traffic backed up in all directions)
      Mojo Jojo: ... And how annoyed they'll be that they can't reach their destinations on time!

    • Mojo Jojo: I've got to get you into my life!

    • Mojo Jojo: I want to hold your cash!

    • Buttercup: (Facing every villain she's stolen teeth from) Girls? Uh, a little help here?
      Blossom: Sorry, Buttercup. You know what they say. An eye for an eye...
      Bubbles: And a tooth for a tooth.

    • Him: Goo goo GOT YOU!

    • Him: Ah, I should have known better.

    • Fuzzy Lumpkins: Hey! What are y'all doin' here?
      Mojo Jojo: Well, I'm here to destroy the Powerpuff Girls, and I can only assume that these two losers are here to watch a master at work.
      Him: Listen, you pathetic primate! It is I who shall destroy the Powerpuff Girls, not you! So, why not run along and have a banana?
      Mojo Jojo: Oh, that is a misconception!
      (Mojo Jojo and Him argue)
      Princess Morbucks: QUIET!! Now, listen. It doesn't matter that you got all your little gadgets, or that you're the ultimate evil. All that matters is that I'll destroy the Powerpuff Girls! Which I will, because I have the most powerful power in the whole wide world. COLD HARD CASH!!
      Mojo Jojo: She has a point there.
      Him: Yes. She does. (Long silence)
      Mojo Jojo: But still...
      Him: Yeah!
      (They begin arguing again, with Princess joining in, Fuzzy Lumpkins looks back and forth)
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: Hey, I wanna fight, too!

    • Mojo Jojo: The city of Townsville. I hate you. I do not enjoy the fact that three superhero female children take up residence in you. And by hurting me and forcing me to dwell in one of your correctional facilities, these mutant infant girls prevent me from obtaining political control of you! But you will be mine, and they will most certainly...
      Him: ... Pay! I have been made a fool by you for the last time. But as they say, all good things must come to an end. And your end is...
      Princess Morbucks: (Talking to her father) ... Tonight! Think of it as an investment toward your future. If I don't destroy the Powerpuff Girls tonight... I'LL NEVER GIVE YOU A DAY OF PEACE UNTIL I...
      (Cut to Fuzzy trying to sing)
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: Doo... doo-doo-doo... (Hits only wrong notes) Oh, I'm sorry, Jo. I can't play you purty tonight. I got them derned Powerpuffs in my noodle! (Angrily) And they make me so mad I wanna...
      Mojo Jojo: (Stomping through the streets in his robot walker) ... Destroy them I will! Tonight is the night in which...
      Him: ... Your reign of goodness will end... (Grows much taller) ... and my reign of evil shall...
      Princess Morbucks: (Flying around with her jet thrusters from "Stuck Up, Up, and Away") ... Begin to take hold, as I take over...
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: (Walking around carrying a large rock) ... Townsville ain't gonna be no more after I get them Powerpuff....
      Professor Utonium: ... Girls, time for bed.

    • Him: I'd just like to say thank you on behalf of the group and hope we passed the audition.

    • Him: Hello! GOODBYE!

    • (Mojo Jojo and Moko are screaming loudly)
      Him: Mojo! ... Mojo! MOJO!!
      Mojo Jojo: WHAT?!
      Him: I STILL DON'T GET IT!
      Mojo Jojo: THE LOUDER YOU YELL, THE MORE PAIN IT CAUSES THE LISTENERS! AND THEIR PAIN IS OUR PLEASURE!!
      Him: MOJO! YOU'RE A PAIN!
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN!
      Princess Morbucks: WE QUIT!
      Mojo Jojo: WHAT?!
      Fuzzy Lumpkins, Princess Morbucks, & Him: WE QUIT!!
      Mojo Jojo: GOOD, GOOD! BUT EVEN LOUDER!!
      (The other three groan and storm off)
      Fuzzy Lumpkins: Uh... well, now what do we do?
      Him: Let's get back to where we once belonged.

    • Stuart Best: So, there you have it. The Beat Alls have taken over; the Girls have taken off. Will they return? Perhaps, perhaps not. But as they say, tomorrow never knows. I'm Stuart Best, and this has been "A Day in the Life."

    • Blossom: "Beat Alls crash Mr. Kite's benefit. Powerpuffs nowhere in sight." So, what?

    • Narrator: Sounds like the Professor has some magical mystery tricks up his sleeve!

    • Blossom: They're going nowhere, man.

    • Judy: Remember, Girls: Someday monkey won't play piano song.

    • Narrator: Buttercup's teeth may be fine, but her attitude sure is rotten.

    • (After giving Buttercup a dollar)
      Professor Utonium: Buttercup, what do you say?
      Buttercup: What? What CAN I say? Thank you isn't enough to express my gratitude. This is the first piece of currency I've ever owned and it's ALL MINE, to do with whatever I WANT. I've never had this feeling before.
      Professor Utonium: Well, I'm glad you like it.
      Buttercup: Like it? I LOVE IT. The feel, the smell, the taste, the POWER. I now understand why Mojo's always robbing banks.

    • Sergeant Pepper: Thank you. My name is Sergeant Pepper of the Townsville Police, and at the request of my commanding officers, I'd like to make this statement. Help! We need somebody! Help! Not just anybody! Help! We need the Powerpuff Girls! Thank you.

    • Bubbles: Were you trying to knock out my teeth?
      Buttercup: No, no, of course not. I'd never do that... no matter how valuable they are.

  • NOTES (14)

    • This is the first time that HIM has been sent to jail.

    • This episode was nominated for the Outstanding Animated Program (for 1 hour or less), but it lost to The Simpsons.

    • During the show, you hear 8 actual Beatles songs:

      A Hard Day's Night: During Stuart Best's documentary, especially the held guitar note at the beginning of the song when we are shown the Beat-Alls' half-lit faces.

      A Day in the Life: When we are shown the "Most Wanted" poster of the Beat-Alls, we hear the build-up of the song which featured a full orchestra. We also hear the held 45-second piano note at the end of the episode.

      Hey Bulldog: We hear the guitar solo of "Hey Bulldog" when Sgt. Pepper is begging the Girls to come back.

      Strawberry Fields Forever: We hear the song when the Professor is confronting the Girls for not helping save Townsville from the Beat-Alls. We also hear it when Mojo Jojo first meets Moko Jono at the bank.

      While My Guitar Gently Weeps: We hear the guitar solo by Eric Clapton when the Beat-Alls enter the bank.

      I Want You(She's So Heavy): You can hear the guitar solo when Mojo is climbing the ladder.

      The Ballad of John and Yoko: You can hear it when the Beat-Alls are robbing all the white stuff at the market.

      The End: Listen closely and you can hear the drum solo from "The End" when the 3 Beat-Alls are on the rooftops destroying the city.

    • LOOK CLOSELY: In Stuart Best's documentary, when he utters the line, "When questioned, authorities had this to say", before we first see Sgt. Pepper, you see a morgue wagon. This could mirror the "Paul is Dead" conspiracy of 1969, when fans thought that Paul McCartney was dead from a car accident that occurred on November 9, 1966. You also have to think about the 3 cars outside the police department (2 police cars and the morgue wagon) and the 3 Beat-Alls (Princess, Him, and Fuzzy) destroying the city on the rooftops.

    • Fuzzy Lumpkins' first appearance since "Impeach Fuzz."

    • Fuzzy Lumpkins has appeared in both of these episodes for the first time.

    • Villain(s): Mojo Jojo, Him, Princess Morbucks, & Fuzzy Lumpkins.

    • Michell looks like a real monkey without her costume on.

    • This is the first time Buttercup has ever received a dollar.

    • The Beat Alls each play the role of a specific Beatle. Mojo Jojo is John Lennon, Fuzzy Lumpkins is George Harrison (the shy one who provided the "rock"), Him being the eccentric one is most likely Ringo Starr, and Princess is matched with Paul McCartney, being she was the force behind The Beat Alls. She also was the one that first suggested that they band together. Much like Paul McCartney, and The Beatles, and ironically, Princess and Paul also share the same initials, P.M.

    • The Beatles from the Yellow Submarine movie make a cameo in "Meet the Beat Alls."

    • This is the second time Princess has alligned herself with Mojo, and the second time Mojo, Fuzzy, and Him have alligned.

    • This is the third emmy-nominated episode.

    • There are many jokes and puns referring to the real 1960's band, "The Beatles."

  • ALLUSIONS (35)

    • Stuart Best
      This is an allusion to two early Beatles, bassist Stuart Sutcliffe and drummer Pete Best. Stuart Sutcliffe stayed with the Beatles until Hamburg, where he stayed while he was engaged to Astrid Kirchherr and died of a brain hemmorage at the age of 21. Pete Best stayed on as the Beatles' drummer until the audition for George Martin, where Martin decided he was not talented enough to carry the Beatles to the top. He was replaced by Ringo Starr.

    • Most Wanted's Poster
      This poster, including five photographs by every single of the Beat-Alls, was almost identical to the cover of The Beatles' album A Hard Day's Night. The album was the soundtrack of the film with the same name and was the first Beatles' album where all the songs were original from The Fab Four.

    • Mojo Jojo and Moko Jono's bed in the middle of an intersection, with traffic backed up in all directions.
      This is a reference to John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Bed-ins for Peace. They were two non-violent ways to protest against war and promote peace during the time of the Vietnam War in 1969, just after they married on Gibraltar.

    • Blossom: They're going nowhere, man.
      This is a reference to The Beatles' song Nowhere Man, first released as the fourth track of their sixth album Rubber Soul in 1965 in the United Kingdom; in the United States was released as part of the album Yesterday... and Today. The song, although credited as Lennon/McCartney, was recorded only by John Lennon and represents the start of Lennon's philosophically-oriented music.

    • Narrator: Sounds like the Professor has some magical mystery tricks up his sleeve!
      This is a reference to The Beatles' television film, song and album named Magical Mystery Tour.
      The one hour television film was originally aired in the United Kingdom on BBC-TV on the Christmas Holidays of 1967, and was destroyed by the critic, although it's been praised by some filmmakers like Steven Spielberg.
      The album, the soundtrack of the movie, was released in the UK on December 8th of 1967 was a great example of the psychedelic music of that era, with great songs like The Fool on the Hill, I am the Walrus, Strawberry Fields Forever, Blue Jay Way (written by George Harrison), Flying (credited as Lennon/McCartney/Harrison/Starkey), Penny Lane and the classic All You Need is Love.
      The song was the opening track of the album and was written by both John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

    • Stuart Best: But as they say, tomorrow never knows.
      This is a reference to the final track of The Beatles' album Revolver (released in 1967) named Tomorrow Never Knows. The song primarily written by John Lennon (although it's credited as Lennon/McCartney) was based on the book The Psychedelic Experience written by Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner and Richard Alpert, which was based on The Tibetan Book of Death, with the understanding that the LSD experiences are similar to the dying process. It is considered one of the first pieces of psychedelia due to the processed vocals, very compressed drums, reverse guitars, and looped tape effects.

    • Stuart Best: I'm Stuart Best, and this has been A Day in the Life.
      A Day in the Life, a merging of two different, but complementary songs fragments authored independently by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, was a song by The Beatles recorded as the last song of the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, released on June first of 1967. This song is considered one of the most influential, ambitious and grundbreaking works in pop music history thanks to the impressionistic lyrics, innovative production, and sophisticated arrangements like a little bit improvised and cacophonus orchestral crescendo.

    • Him: Hello! GOODBYE!
      This is a clear reference to The Beatles' song Hello, Goodbye. This song was originally written by Paul McCartney (although it's credited as Lennon/McCartney) and it was the Christmas single of the year of 1967. Later it was released as part of the album Magical Mystery Tour.

    • Him: Let's get back to where we once belonged.
      This is a reference to The Beatles' song Get Back. It's was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney (although it was mainly a work by McCartney) and it was originally released as a single credited to "The Beatles with Billy Preston" in 1969. Later it became the closing track of the last album by The Beatles before they split, Let It Be in 1970.

    • Mojo Jojo: Imagine all the people...
      Those are parts of the lyrics of the John Lennon's song Imagine. The song, written by Lennon, first appeared in the Lennon's album Imagine in 1971. The song is widely considered as one of the greatest songs of all time and as an utopian hymn.

    • Him: Ah, I should have known better.
      This is a reference to The Beatles' song I Should Have Known Better, written by John Lennon (although it is credited as Lennon/McCartney) and first released in the album A Hard Day's Night in 1964.

    • Mojo Jojo: I've got to get you into my life!
      A clear reference to The Beatles song Got To Get You Into My Life. It was mostly written by Paul McCartney (although is credited as Lennon/McCartney) and it was released as part of the album Revolver in 1966. A lot of people believed it was a love song, but McCartney admitted that the song was about marijuana in Barry Miles' book Paul McCartney: Many Years from Now.

    • Professor Utonium: What will the people of Townsville do when they look for the Girls with the sun in their eyes and they're gone?
      This is a reference to The Beatles' song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. It was written mostly by John Lennon with some material by Paul McCartney. This is the third song of the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and is little infamous because it has the initials L.S.D. although Lennon mantained that the song is based in a draw made by his son Julian and that the initials are a mere coincidence.

    • Mojo Jojo: Better run for your lives if you can, little girls!
      This is a clear reference to The Beatles' song Run For Your Life, the last song of their sixth album Rubber Soul, first released on the year of 1965. The song is credited as Lennon/McCartney although is mostly a John Lennon composition.

    • Princess Morbucks: You say stop, but I say go, go, GO!
      Those are part of the lyrics of The Beatles' song Hello, Goodbye, song written by Paul McCartney (although is credited, like a lot of Beatles' song as Lennon/McCartney) first released as a single and later included in the album Magical Mystery Tour at 1967.

    • Him: That's it! Oh, we will be known as "the Silver Beat Alls"!
      Mojo Jojo: No! Too fancy. We shall be known simply as... the Beat Alls!
      After The Beatles were known as The Quarrymen, they went to a progression of names: Jonny and the Moondogs, Long John and the Beatles, Long John and the Silver Beatles, The Silver Beatles, The Beat Brothers, and in the end, they decided to simply be The Beatles. This dialogue is a reference to this.

    • Mojo Jojo: Look! Here, there, everywhere! I've got a feeling, a feeling deep inside, a feeling I can't hide. Oh, no!
      An obvious plug of two Beatles songs: Revolver's "Here, There, and Everywhere" and Let It Be's "I've Got A Feeling."

    • Blossom: "Beat Alls crash Mr. Kite's benefit. Powerpuffs nowhere in sight." So, what?
      The place where the Beat-Alls attack has the same title of Sgt. Pepper's "Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite!"

    • Episode Title: Meet the Beat Alls
      The title sounds like the Beatles' 1963 album, "Meet the Beatles."

    • Him: I'd just like to say thank you on behalf of the group and hope we passed the audition.
      This quote is a reference of the quote John Lennon says when finishing the rooftop concert in the movie, Let It Be.

    • The Beatles: References
      Nearly everything in "Meet the Beat-Alls" is a reference to some aspect of the Beatles' career -- Moko Jono/Yoko Ono, tons of songs -- the Beatles' animated avatars even appear twice (once in their cartoon-show versions, once as the Yellow Submarine versions).

    • Princess Morbucks: So, tell us again why we're only stealing toilet paper, light bulbs, milk, flour, and eggs.
      Mojo Jojo: Well, Moko's idea is that stealing items that are all white isn't against the law. So, it's okay to take them.
      Princess Morbucks: Huh?
      Mojo Jojo: It's all right 'cause they're all white!
      This is a reference to The Beatles' White album.

    • Him: Goo Goo Gotcha!
      This is actually a play on words from something that is said a lot in "I Am the Walrus," which is "Goo Goo Goo Joob!"

    • Fuzzy Lumpkins: I'm gonna let you down and leave you flat!
      These are the lyrics to the Beatles song, "You Can't Do That."

    • Judy: Remember, Girls: Someday monkey won't play piano song.
      This a reference to a common misheard lyric from the Beatles song, "Michelle." The actual lyric is "Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble."

    • Moko Jono/Michelle: Names
      The names and costume of this character are references to both Yoko Ono and The Beatles' love ballad Michelle.

      Yoko Ono, a Japanese-American artist and musician, was the second wife of John Lennon; together they had a son named Sean. She is often blamed for breaking up The Beatles.

      Michelle, written by Paul McCartney (although it's credited as Lennon-McCartney), was first released as the closing track of the Side A of the album Rubber Soul in 1965. The song is different to other Beatles' recordings in that some lyrics are on French and it is believed to be one of the first bilingual pop songs ever.

    • Stuart Best: Name
