QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–418

This should be easy.


Shown above are three screen-grabs from a very specific episode of the Powerpuff Girls. The four people featured are, obviously, Mojo Jojo, HIM, Fuzzy and The Princess. Simply tell me who this episode pays a huge tribute to, and how the way the Powerpuff Girls finally defeat the quarter quartet is a further tribute to the same person or persons.

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!


Please pardon the delayed answering, but I have had to shift from Delhi to Bangalore, where I work now as Chief Sub Editor with Deccan Herald.

Nine replies, with one exhorting me to answer this as quickly as possible! The rest are correct.

The answer, obviously, is the Beatles, given that this motley collection from PPG called themselves the Beat-alls. Their defeat comes when they break up as a result of Mojo Jojo falling in love with a female monkey called Moko Jono, a clear reference to the Beatles breaking up due to Yoko Ono.

Here’s a better picture of all the covers. As you can clearly see, the last panel would have been a dead giveaway!



  1. It's a reference to different Beatles album covers. I don't know the other part.

  2. why haven't you given the answer the yet

  3. The Beat-alls, a reference to The Beatles, obviously. The screengrabs are, in order, the covers to the Meet LP, Please Please Me LP and A Hard Days Night LP (debatable).

    They seriously beat the PPG and are only defeated in the end by a Yoko Ono-parody who manages to break the band up.


Post your answers here. Wait for them to be moderated, which will take a day or two to be done.
