The Beets

The Beets are Doug Funnie and Skeeter Valentine’s favorite band. They are a parody of the popular 1960’s rock band The Beetles. Band members include Monroe Yoder (a parody of John Lennon) on bass, Chap Lipman (a parody of Ringo Starr) on drums, Flounder (more than likely a parody of Paul McCartney) on guitar, and Wendy Nespah (a female version of George Harrison) on keyboards/tuba. They were first introduced in the episode “Doug Rocks” when Skeeter introduces Doug to their music. They’ve had numerous hit songs including “Killer Tofu,” “Shout Your Lungs Out,” and “I Need More Allowance.” The Beets make their last appearance on the Nickelodeon incarnation in the season.2 episode “Doug’s Hot Ticket.” In the Disney version they break up in the first season, but are ultimately reunited by Doug in the perultimate episode when Doug promises he can get them back together for the school dance, only for the band to break up again over a banana.
