I love these cartoons! They are kind of the main thing that led me to liking the Beatles. Although I have to say, the story plots have NOTHING to do with the songs sometimes.

I love the cartoons as well. Even though the accents and physical form the characters are off (Ringo does not look like that), they still made me laugh. I watched every episode on youtube. It actually became a good way to learn their music for me as a new Beatle fan. It's been a while since I last watched an episode though…

Ithink when I saw them again for the first time sometime last year, it seriously felt like the longest 5 minutes ever. The animation was terrible and the storylines were just…stupid (sorry), but I caught myself watching them again a bit later, and taking it for what it is and the time they were made, they're still silly, but I can sit through them now. :)

Your site's pretty cool, Kail, regardless of what I said.

Thanks StarWisher! I don't claim the Beatles cartoon, or the Star Trek cartoon for that matter, are high art, but I find both of them have their charms. I'm also fond of them for nostalgic reasons. (The Beatles cartoons taught my son how to read too.)

 

Peace.

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for those cartoons. I know they don't represent them very well and that the videos have nothing to do with the songs, but I love them anyway. They are just so funny.

I love the cartoons. They are the dorkiest things ever, but that's why i love them. Their portrayal of Paul is the best of all the Beatles. I bet John hated the guy who did his voice. But who cares? I find it cute.

I love them, but there are some things that kind of make me cringe *coughGEORGE'SVOICEcoughcough* but they're really cute. I always feel like watching one when I need a giggle or two.

They even had a SFF episode, so that's instantly my favorite. Plus they're pretty quotable, along with some of the YouTubers comments.

Yeah, me too, becuase lots of old cartoons are usually pretty bad! The one I'd say weren't would be Scooby-Doo and the one where he was a bill and then it was something about conjunctions on a railroad track!!!!!!!

They are ok in small doses but after 1 or two its kind of dull and i need about 8 months to get over seeing an episode on youtube. Their uniqueness and existence pulled me in but in comparison to the Yellow Submarine movie they really are not good – which might explain why Apple have never authorised their release. Not that they find it difficult to block possible projects – not crappy or incredibly expensive merchandise tho, nearly anything goes with that – anyone want a pen?

I had to find a thread on the cartoon since that's how I discovered the group in the first place. I've been to Kail's ^^ webpage and it brought good memories. I also own a copy of the making-of book.

LOL. I had such good memories of the cartoon that I bought a VHS at a comic book convention in the 90s and was sad to see how poorly the cartoon aged. After reading the making-of book, though, I feel a bit bad about slagging it. They were on a strict budget, and it was the first time most of the crew had ever worked on a cartoon. The basic thread across the interviews was, "It was a piece of crap, but we did the best we could." There was kind of a scruffy sense of pride in being part of the first cartoon to feature a music group, especially the biggest in the world. And many of them went on to do bigger and better things.

Last night I was helping a friend organize her medical bills, and I suggested we watch some episodes to while away the time. And I pleasantly discovered that this is a great show to watch with someone with an equally ironic sense of humor. She's in love with cartoon Ringo, and I still favor grumpy cartoon George.

On a more serious note, it helped me reconnect with the moment I really became a Beatles fan, at eight years old watching the episode for "I Wanna Be Your Man," after years of being forced to listen mostly to classical music, and my brain fritzing from the insanity on the screen and the discovery of music so powerful and explosive.

I was hooked.

Thanks Parlance, didn't know about the budget and all.

However, I do feel the same about it as meanmistermustard. I've only watched about 2 of them and they were okay, but that was like a year ago and I still don't feel like watching another one.

And I hate it when they try to portray someone but the voice doesn't sound the same at all. That's also what I dislike about Yellow Submarine by the way.
