Marge once wrote a letter to Ringo Starr, who replied years later, apologizing for his lateness. When Homer found a picture of him Marge told him that when she was a schoolgirl and The Beatles were very popular. When Mr. Burns was told that Ringo was the drummer of the Beatles he told him that he remembered their off-key caterwauling on the old Sullivan show.[3]

The Beatles met Apu in India, and they became good friends. Years later, after Apu moved to Springfield, Paul McCartney and his late wife Linda visited occasionally to spend time with Apu and relax in his rooftop garden at the Kwik-E-Mart. On one of those visits, they met Lisa and encouraged her as she was struggling with her decision to become a vegetarian.[4]

The melted Beatles waxworks

Ned Flanders is a big fan of The Beatles and had a whole room in his house filled with Beatles memorabilia, until Bart and Milhouse wrecked it.[5]

The Beatles appeared as wax statues in a display at the Springfield Wax Museum. The Squeaky-voiced teen, leading a tour group, said that they were "exactly as they looked performing on The Ed Sullivan Show", but the statues had melted due to a spell of very hot weather in Springfield.[6]

While Homer and Marge were dating, Homer made a mixtape for her by recording songs from the radio, including "Blue-Haired Beauty", which became "their" song. Homer also inadvertently recorded "the D.J. cursing over the music because he didn't know his mike was still on". Years later, Marge found the album with the song and played it for Homer, which prompted him to tell the story of the mixtape. Marge said that for years after Homer gave her the mixtape, she had wondered why The Beatles' song "Yellow Submarine" had so many swear words in it.[12]
