It's called "Meat the Beatles" and it's about their fav meat kitchen recipes.
Why Capitol refused to release their super hit "I don't feel fine at all" and what was the Beatless reaction?

No. The rights will be burned in a fire and nobody will have them. 

Which famous cartoon featured a cameo from George?

John Lennon : The Animated Series (a spinoff from the original Beatles cartoon). George only got a cameo in revenge for barely mentioning John in his autobiography.

How many appearances did Paul make on this show?

Voice Actors Union rules prevent the non-living from doing voice work except on Scooby-Doo.

Why did Paul wish to change the name of the writer of his solo compositions to McCartney Paul?

Publicity stunt suggested by his 2nd wife. It backfired on him. He should never have listened to her.

In the song When I'm Sixty-Four , are Vera, Chuck, and Dave all siblings, cousins, or a mixture of the two categories?

They were distant 3rd cousins ten times removed.

 

Why did Paul take off his shoes for the Abbey Road cover photo?

He didn't.  While Paul was preoccupied with overdubbing vocals for "Cayenne," Yoko ate his shoes without permission.

Who ghostwrote George's juicy tell-all book about Auntie Gin?

Paul himself. The book is about when Aunty Gin went to visit the McCartneys and rang the doorbell, but Paul and Linda started singing Let 'Em In and were too busy singing to answer it. By the time they'd stopped, she had given up and gone back home. 

Why did Paul pretend George wrote the book instead, and what was the consequence of this?

Paul had always wanted to be a Paperback Writer , but after the massive failure of his first book, In His Own Wrong, he was reluctant to put his name out there again.  George was on the outs with the boys at that time, after Mal discovered him carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, so Paul decided to pen the book under George's name in case it was a flop.  The book, titled Crippled Inside , became a critically lauded best seller, helping George to launch a secondary career as a science fiction author.  Auntie Gin successfully sued both George and Paul for defamation;   George parlayed the fiasco into the top 10 hit "Why Does Everyone Keep Suing Me?" while Paul died penniless in Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five .

 

Which solo John song is Paul credited with playing the Pipes Of Peace on?

The not so ballad of John and Paul. though it's a John solo song it was recorded entirely by George and Bingo.

How come Bingo finally got to be a member of the Beatless Brothers?

He became a free agent after being kicked out of the Banana Splits.  Fleagle and Drooper caught him in a compromising position with a member of the Sour Grape Bunch.

 

Victor Spinetti appeared in the first three Beatle movies.  Why did he not appear in Yellow Submarine ?

The Beatless Brothers, Juggy and JoJo, were costumed performing mascots for Paul's "Beat-Free Monday" campaign, which sought to limit the amount of beats in contemporary music. Juggy had black skin and a huge dyed white Afro, and wore a white 3 piece suit with a black tie and black shoes; Jojo was the same but with blacks and whites reversed (skin/hair included). One of them would carry around a parade drum with the skins removed, and the other would try to throw a basketball through the empty frame. Paul insisted they be present in the studio for every Beatles recording made without percussion - ironically enough, since they were closest to Ringo personally. (They were all HUGE ring aficionados!)

What contributions (writing, recording) did Yoko make to "...Guitar Gently Weeps"?

She made George and his guitar weep after smashing open his biscuit jar and eating every last crumb. She also nabbed Eric's chocolates.

What contributions did Yoko make to writing and recording Good Night ?

She contributed not contributing.
What was the reason why Henry The Horse and Mr. Kite split and sued each other back in 198something?

Mr. Kite claimed that Henry the Horse violated the terms of his contract, in letter if not spirit, by dancing the Charleston, the boot-scoot and the electric slide at Mr. Kite's benefit, rather than the promised waltz. Henry countersued in turn, claiming that that the contract had already been de facto voided since Mr. Kite had only undertaken seven somersets, instead of the promised ten, none of them on solid ground.

What was George's public comment regarding the cases?

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
