I wondered if there were any potential lawsuits involved, especially with a few of those pieces (like the "Get Back" parody).

Not a bit like Cagney.

My sister bought me a copy of this on vhs and the album for Christmas. What she told me was that Paul hated it, John felt that the Get Back part was too close but he liked enough that he refused to send the copy they gave him back, and Ringo didn't like the sad parts. George was clearly in favor. 😀

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

From the BBC's h2g2 site: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A13730834

At the time that All You Need is Cash and The Rutles were released, the rights to the Beatles' back-catalogue were owned by publishing company ATV. Missing the point by several miles, the company sued the producers of the Rutles' music for infringement of copyright. Rather than fighting the case, the decision was made to hand over half of the rights to the Rutles' songs to ATV, instantly halving Innes's income from his music. As a final insult, Innes was obliged to add the names of Lennon and McCartney or George Harrison to the writing credits on his songs.

I don't know if this is the full story, but it makes sense that it would be ATV rather than Apple who would sue. I can't see The Beatles themselves being offended enough to bother, particularly as Neil Innes and Eric Idle were friends of theirs (and Innes appeared in Magical Mystery Tour).

Regardless, I think I'll check it out!

And I got Magical Mystery Tour from the library today! So I think i'll tuck into my pajamas later, grab a bowl of popcorn and settle in for some madness, or so I've heard. Terrible reviews, yes, but I think i'll get a kick out of the little things. Hoorah for a Beatles movie night! 😀

I've had the Rutles CD for sometime now. Saw All You Ned Is Cash when it first came out as I was a Beatle and Monty Python fan back then.

Looks like Amazon has a bunch of Rutle stuff.  Sweet!
