Just watched an episode on YouTube called "Penny Lane". Being from Liverpool myself i'm amazed the voice actors even got the job. Paul sounds Australian for a start. I might re-dub these myself:)

Indubidately, good chap! For one thing in particular, we, the people of the British Empire, do not all talk with such high class!

That pretty well sums it up.  It was done crappily, (especially the voices)a-hard-days-night-ringo-13  but as a Beatles fan, it is kind of fun & watchable.  Especially the sing alongs!

Happy 49th anniversary to the cartoon! From Fab Four FAQ 2.0:

Also on September 25: On this day in 1965, The Beatles Cartoon series premiered on US television.

Reviled by some (Brits particularly, it seems) and loved as a nostalgic feature of a generation’s childhood, this low rent cash-in exercise in exploitation served to dumb down and amplify caricatures first established in A Hard Day’s Night: John, the leader; Paul the cute one; George, the taciturn second-tier Beatle, and Ringo, the lovable dummy. It began in arguably the year that American Beatlemania reached its zenith (when they played Shea and before bad press and weirdness took its toll in the public mindset) and ended in September 1969, although the final two years were all reruns.

Like The Honeymooners, there were a total of 39 episodes produced; though the last new installment aired in October 1967, the show’s makers ignored Sgt. Pepper’s existence completely (as well as the group’s evolving looks), venturing no further forward musically than the January single, “Penny Lane” / “Strawberry Fields Forever.” Seen in the clip posted here (coupling a pair of psychedelic John songs: “Rain” and “Strawberry Fields” - the former for the sing-along segment), the animators briefly toyed with updating John’s look for the latter tune, giving him glasses (but no moustache) - and then taking it away.

It remains one of the show’s most strikingly effective pieces of musical representation.

Another Beatley person has passed away: Lance Percival, who was the voice of Paul and Ringo in the animated series, and Old Fred in Yellow Submarine died on Tuesday.
