It would be cool if Apple released a set on Blu-ray and DVD -  found that Apple bought the rights to it awhile back, so perhaps they plan to do something with in the future (or they just want to make sure nobody else buys them) 

Thinking they want them gone..... paul-mccartney

I've seen pictures of the cartoons, but never actually saw a video, that is until now. I agree with some of the previous posters. They're alright for a laugh, but the American accents are awful, and couldn't they at least have tried to find actors that sounds remotely like the Beatles? I've seen two now, but I'm not itching to see more. Give me Yellow Submarine over these any day. 

I was 8 or 9 years old when the reruns started (1970 I think) and looked forward to them every weekend. At that age, who gives a fig about bad accents and story lines? The Beatles were cartoons on TV! Woo-hoo! Such a fond childhood memory.

Bring on the collectors set! They will sell at least one. a-hard-days-night-john-1

^^I haven't seen these cartoons since they were first on the mid-60s. I remember enjoying them as a source of Beatles music as well as for some laughs. A few months ago I was looking for images to celebrate Starr's 10000th post and found all sorts of cool screenshots. @Beatlebug didn't you mention sleeping with your Martin on occasion? Looks like your not the only one 🙂

I've not done it in some months, but that's cute.  a-hard-days-night-george-9

I'm ambivalent about whether to watch the cartoons. I've almost bought the series a few times but held off.

Watch a few episodes online first, if you don't like it then don't buy it.

Maybe watching them with the sound turned off and making up the words in your head is the way to go. You could make them sound like The Beatles. a-hard-days-night-george-10

^ At that point, you'd have an abridged series.

Yeah, that's understandable. They couldn't possibly hold the same magic for anyone who was not alive when the cartoons were popular. Back in the day, any medium that had The Beatles on was a gift. My love for them is purely emotional and I treasure them.

My first thought last night was : "We could have AD40 overdub the cartoons. I'm sure she could come up with great storylines and one-liners."

I watched a few episodes last night and I was reminded that the cartoon plots are a continuation of the premise of Help . The Beatles all live in the same house, they eat together, they travel together, they ski together, they bike together, etc... The cartoon perpetuates the same fantasy that for me holds such a strong appeal - of the Beatles as friends and mates!

I started watching the cartoon episodes again and I enjoy them this time around. I hated them the first try.
