"Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, The" (series) by The Beatles – ****

First released: 1967

Many ties with The Smothers Brothers. During the show’s most notorious run from 1967-1969, The Beatles premiered their "Hey Jude" and "Revolution" videos, which appeared on "The David Frost Show" in Europe. Then, George himself made a personal appearance on the show.

The Smothers Brothers was canceled and the brothers went their separate ways for a time. By 1974, they were back together and at one of these reunion concerts is where John Lennon and Harry Nilsson got kicked out of the nightclub.

In 1975, the Smothers were back on the air, and Ringo performed "No No Song" with them, and then told a few jokes.
