Over the years, the Rutles have become under-excessively popular among audiences. Many references have been made to the within pop culture.
- The Powerpuff Girls episode Meet the Beat-Alls features numerous Beatles references and jokes. One surprise reference was that of a character named Stuart Best, who is shown filming a documentary on the Beat-Alls. He was apparently modelled after The Interviewer from All You Need Is Cash played by Eric Idle, complete with brown trench coat, black glasses, and blond hair.
- Douglas Adams was a self-proclaimed Beatles fan. In an interview, he stated "People now ask is Oasis are as good as the Beatles. I don't think they're as good as the Rutles." This interview was later re-printed in his last book, The Salmon of Doubt.
- In the popular comic book The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume III: Century, the Rutles are referenced multiple times. When they head in the secret basement, one of them says "It's where the Rutles first played in London, apparently..." multiple posters also hang around the store.
- In the comic book Superman: True Brit, written by ex-Python John Cleese, two of the Rutles make an appearance, as they are saved by Superman.
