I hate that cartoon. Worst accents ever. The Beatles didn't like it either when it first started. The songs are great obviously but other than that… I'm sure Ringo disliked the way he looked too.


Yeah, I nearly DIED when I saw it. I mean, they use so many "Americanisms" that it is not funny. (Disclaimer: I'm not British.) When Matt Groening wanted to include Ringo in an episode of The Simpsons, he asked him if he wanted to be depicted like he was in the American TV series, or "
Yellow Submarine." He went with "Yellow Submarine." I would too. a-hard-days-night-ringo-4
 

And the premises of the episodes frequently have NOTHING TO DO with the ACTUAL SONGS. Just take any of the songs from Beatles For Sale, if you dare. "Baby's in Black" and "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" are the worst offenders. 

I could go on for hours. 

And seriously, folks. DOES RINGO REALLY HAVE TO BE THAT SHORT? (!?!?!?!?!?!?!)

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Actually my favorite episode (so far) is when the Beatles travel to the past and to avoid being killed by the Mayas (or Aztecs or whatever) they sing Tomorrow Never Knows. To me, that's the official video for that song.

"Taxman" is actually pretty funny.

The themes of the stories and the way they fit the songs were a bit of a stretch at times but keep in mind these were for (American) kids.

The Beatles understandlably were not too amused with the series but what American kid would understand the authentic accents?

I think they are amusing in their own way, and are a reminder of the struggle to get as many Beatle things into the mainstream media as possible in these Beatly-times. I wish I would've been just a few years older back then. Accurate? No. Juvenile and cute? Yes. Which is important for the intended audience?


Happy Nat, stop being so RIGHT. Honestly.

I hated it personally, and so did the beatles. Ringo and George liked Chains i think...

"The best band? The Beatles. The most overrated band? The Beatles."
