Trivia

The Beatles themselves reportedly did not care for this series. They were also less than enthusiastic about the idea of Brodax and Dunning doing a feature film. However, they changed their minds about the feature film when they began seeing completed footage from Yellow Submarine (1968). (John Lennon admitted in the 1970s that he "got a blast" out of watching reruns of the old cartoons.) See more »

Cute Animation, Funny Humor, And A Good Time Sing-A-Long
21 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

love these cartoons. the animation looks like cartoon veteran Gene Dietch had something to do with them. it looks more like Dietch than the style of Brodax's other Beatles toon 'Yellow Submarine'.

i can't say the voices sounded anything like the Beatles, and i very much doubt the Beatles would say things like "guv'nor". still, the animation is very cute and lively and the sing-a-longs just adorable. i even heard a few Beatle songs i'd never heard before (thought i'd heard 'em all).

these little cartoons are so cute and adorable that i'm surprised they aren't easier to get ( i had to order from a foreign seller). and i wish someone would restore them and make a better DVD transfer. but then again, just try to find a decent, restored copy of the BBC television classic 'Magical Mystery Tour'.

these are a great way for parents to introduce their babies to the ever pleasing sounds of the Fab Four.
