A series that seemed that served the sole purpose of turning kids onto Beatles music.
27 October 2008 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

The Beatles were huge in the 60s with just about everyone. Why not turn little kids onto their great music right? Well, this was a nice try, but this cartoon series was really lacking in something. It wasn't very funny or clever, and every plot was created to wrap around a Beatles song, making each episode like a poor animated music video. This wasn't a horrible show, it just wasn't very good.

John, Paul, George and Ringo go on lots of exciting adventures, and tucked away in each of their journey's is a special song they share with the audience. The plots may be nonsensical and stupid, and the animation may pale in comparison to already poorly animated shows, like the Flintstones, but the music in each short is what made this not a complete flop.

One of the major problems with this show was the voices. It's as though the casting directors just picked random people to do the Beatles speaking voices, because they sound nothing like their real life counterparts. When they are talking the entire episode, and then go into song, with music from the actual Beatles it sounds weird that their voices do an 180 degree flip. Anyone who doesn't pay attention or isn't a fan of the Beatles may not notice this.

The animation is really bland. When the Beatles are playing instruments, they like to reuse animation a lot, and it's just not very good looking, except for the interesting caricatures of the Beatles used as the characters. The writing is poor, but occasionally an interesting plot came about. Really, this was just kiddie fair with music that could be enjoyed by anyone.

My rating: ** out of ****. 30 mins.
