What if AHDN had been done by different actors than The Beatles, which made it a flop?

By the way, I agree sky

What if AHDN had been a cartoon instead of live people?

It would have had less of an impact and the cartoon show of the era may have gone on longer and the characters may have been voiced by the actual Beatles.

 

What if they had never developed their sound into different territories around the Rubber Soul period?

You're okay, TheBeatlesJohn, in my opinion.

I took a look at the other thread when unknown pointed it out. There are differences. The most obvious being that yours is a "What if The Beatles...?" whereas the earlier thread is a general "What if...?". In both threads I could post, for instance, "What if George hadn't invited Billy Preston along to the Get Back sessions?" However, if I posted "What if Tim Berners-Lee hadn't come up with the interweb?" in this thread, someone like me would give me a big

stay-on-topic

whereas that would be a fine "What if...?" in the Willy Wonka thread.

So far as I'm concerned, while the threads have one thing in common, they have major differences. I'm happy to leave this thread as a separate entity. Had I thought it too similar, I'd have merged them, but I don't, so I haven't.

The Saturday morning cartoon was inspired by the antics of AHDN and Help! so I shudder to think if we didn't have the actual movies and only had the badly-voiced alternative.

How about, What if George hadn't invited Billy Preston along to the Get Back sessions?

The Beatles did return to Love Me Do in in '69 but a very different approach to the song musically (and i don't mean half-arsed).

 

Are we allowed to answer these with thoughts?

What if the first Get Back album was issued in '69 instead of being rejected?
