I could easily go on for hours on this.

 

I could too. I'm grateful we got Danger Mouse over here. I remember Bananaman, but I didn't know the origin of that one until I bought the last Dandy with Paul in it.

Watched all those old shows when i was a kid. Top Cat, Pink Panther (60's and 70's only, they ruined it when they gave him a voice and funky new theme tune from the '80's onwards). The Family Ness was a favourite but doubt that got over to the US. There was a great Laurel and Hardy cartoon on the bbc.

I agree it ruins the whole persona of the Pink Panther and I'm glad I have not seen that version. 

Never heard of Family Ness

The Family Ness is, as you might gather from the title, a scottish cartoon and based on the legend of there being a Loch Ness Monster. It was shown on the bbc throughout the UK i think, not just in Scotland. Here's one of the episodes. Its probably not good now as i was something like 7 years old at the time it was shown.

I love how this thread turned into re-introducing older cartoons! I haven't heard DangerMouse mentioned in a long time – used to love that and Count Duckula.

Let's see…  what have I not revealed already…

I am Canadian.  I am a GIRL, lol, that's probably quite obvious.  I am 29 years old.  I am "artistic" and have been for as long as I can remember, but have yet to find my "niche" although I have tried many.  Lately I have been teaching myself acoustic guitar.  I'm still in the very early stages, but I am very much enjoying it.  I paint, but very rarely…  like a painting every 5 years.  I really want to do it more.  

I grew up around music.  My dad was a musician.  He played guitar, keyboards, and drums (mostly).  He also wrote music, which is something else I have been trying out lately.  

 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Had to do this in two chunks because my phone is lame..

 

Been a Beatles fan since high school.  Got more into them in the last 5 years.  I've been a "big" Lennon fan for much longer.  Got more into Paul's music since seeing him in concert in November of last year.  I also think he's the most gorgeous creature that ever walked the face of this planet.  heart

I am also a vegetarian and big time animal lover.  Also on that subject, Linda McCartney is my absolute hero.

Oh cool I didn't know you painted. The last time I really focused on drawing was about five years ago.

I never would have thought you were a long-time Lennon fan.  I'm pleasantly surprised.

I finally started a painting!  It's pretty big, I'm trying to take a lot of time on it and just let it flow out naturally.

What about people who don't love the Beatles?

Did Dante reserve a special place in his Inferno for them…?

Probably! Luckily I won't have to go there. I saw Paul in concert back in May and became hooked.

LHL, you speak the truth!

I am glad I took time to read this thread. You are all interesting peeps. I am a 45-year-old university librarian who is just now discovering the wonder that is the Beatles.

Whenever I see Linde, I think of the famous American comedian Paul Lynde (tragically died before his time -- 1982, at the age of 56).  Even young people who never saw him during his heyday in the 70s can (and do) easily dial up YouTubes of his appearances on the game show Hollywood Squares occupying his prestigious post as the "center square".  His one-liners and zingers still bring a grin to my face.

 

Now I can't get his voice out of my head. What a character he was!

cbatcu, interesting that you're a "late bloomer" Beatles fan.  I'd be curious to know, why were you not a fan before? And what crossed your mind whenever the Beatles came up in conversation or on the radio?

I grew up in a very religious setting. If I had been around in the 60's, I would have been in one of those church youth groups that hosted the bonfires for Beatles records. At about 30 years old, I began moving away from my upbringing. My musical tastes branched out first into country music. Then I married a man (met him when I was 30 and married him when I was 32) whose musical tastes haven't progressed from 1970's rock. In 13 years we really haven't listened to music much together. Anyhoo, back in May of this year, my husband was looking around on the internet for things to do while we were in Memphis to visit my mom. He said that we should go to the Paul McCartney concert. I said, "Who?" Really, I just went along with him to make him happy. Well, after that 3-hour mind-blowing, emotional performance by SIR PAUL, I had to find out more about him. I guess you could say I'm punch-drunk on the Beatles and Paul's post-Beatles career. I have all the Beatles cds, and I'm buying Wing and the solo career cds as quickly as possible. This website and its forum are amazing for me at this point.

Wow, cbatcu, what a story you have!  I almost envy you because you have been experiencing the Beatles afresh with intensity.  It's hard for me to imagine what that would be like -- I'd have to first get a lobotomy and wipe my mind of the Beatles, and then experience that joy of discovering them anew.  I wonder how many others have been inspired by the McCartney concert in a similar way…  I think most people who know the Beatles just think of it as a way to rekindle old memories and renew what's already there -- it may not occur to us to think that there are people out there of all ages who will be discovering it for the first time.

I discovered the Beatles in earnest in a kind of backassward way when I was about 15, back in 1971, first hearing Ram -- when some family had put giant speakers blasting that album on the front porch of their farmhouse where I and some other junior high school kids had gone for a school field trip to ride horses.  I was blown away and the first thing I did when I got back to the city was buy that album.  Then after that I explored McCartney (Paul's first solo album), and then the White Album, etc.  My older sister was on hand to help me with some of the details, as she had been a fan some ten years prior as a 14-year-old when the Beatles were actually rocking the world.

I guess we've all taken our long and winding road to get to the Beatles. Some of us just took roads that were just a bit longer and more twisting.

My husband is now calling himself a Beatles/McCartney widower because I have my mp3 player/headphones on a lot now. I never had an mp3 player before. Never had reason to before. I've filled up the initial 4 gigs with Beatles and McCartney. I bought a memory chip to go in it so I can expand to more McCartney and then onto the other 3's post Beatles music. He didn't know what a can of worms he opened up by taking me to that concert :-) . Better get off here now and give him some attention.

I'm probably too new around here to reintroduce myself – but can't help butting in when not needed :)

I also note that in another thread folks were discussing whether it was 'newbie' or 'noob'.  I think the latter, my kids even had a noob t-shirt made up for my birthday, though that related to computer games and not Beatle matters (where I am not quite so new, Let It Be was my first album purchase the week it was released).

I've been a fan long enough now to have picked out a Beatly username. It's still me. I'm still infatuated with Sir Paul a-hard-days-night-paul-7. I briefly considered Pauls#4, but nah.

So, I am now Ahhh Girl. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know John sang that, but hey, he's cool too.

I'm keeping my icon/avatar.
