Hello all

Looking through these top-notch pages it is clear that nobody has yet thought of using cartoons from the daily press that either reference or depict the Beatles

I've added a couple to demonstrate what I am referring to

Should I get/ offer a few more?

12927.jpgImage Enlarger

Not all of them are positive, of course, but do they have some interest for others?

Please do bring us more, @bubbles. Would you be able to provide links to the sources for these?

I moved the thread to this section of the forum where it fits in better.

Thanks, again

I am able to give full references and links for everything

And if some of the references are a bit parochial (as in Nos 2 & 4) I'll give a bit of explanation too, if wished for

12174-1.jpgImage Enlarger

This cartoon, drawn by Roy Ullyet for the Daily Express in October 1967, references a brief English media storm concerning the management of a Midlands football club, Coventry City.

Their 'charismatic' manager, Jimmy Hill, had taken the club from the 'Third Division' of English League football to the First. Along the way he had introduced a number of 'innovations', essentially designed to make the game more 'showbiz'.

There was a long drawn-out process in appointing his successor, including a 'circus' whereby the assistant coach of Manchester City, Malcolm Allison, an equally flamboyant character, had been publicly presented as Hill's successor, only to announce, a day later, that he wouldn't be taking the job. The Chairman of the club announced that he was only interested in ' the best' he could find.

The cartoon depicts the Prime Minister of the day, Harold Wilson turning down the 'Coventry Vacancy'. A 'little bird' on the window sill suggests 'That only leaves LBJ, De Gaulle and The Beatles' as candidates for the job.

Taking 'the michael' out of the Chairman of Coventry City's pretensions, but also demonstrating how important 'The Beatles' were in the cultural perceptions of England in 1967.

Hill's eventual successor was Noel Cantwell, a former team-mate of Allison. He was replaced, in 1972 by Joe Mercer, Allison's boss and mentor, in 1967.

I'm sure I don't have to spell out, to anyone here, what The Beatles were doing in 1967

The subject of this piece is obvious and needs little explanation

12455-1.jpgImage Enlarger

The centrepiece of these three cartoons was by Norman Mansbridge and appeared in The Daily Sketch, a low market tabloid owned by the Daily Mail group on December 7th 1967.

The sneering 'joke' about 'scouse spoken' is perhaps typical of Fleet Street's attitude to speakers of English dialects, other than that of RP.

It is also  a bit of a daft remark to make about a shop whose assistants included Jenny Boyd, sister of Patti, and the eponymous 'Jennifer' of Juniper.  (Written in India, at Rishikesh)

From an old 1965 copy of Playboy magazine (which I first encountered at my grandparents' place as a teen) 

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

I think "John" is modelled after Paul, "Paul" is actually George, and "George" is John.

I think part of the joke, @Beatlebug, is being confused about which one's which, all apart from Ringo.

I realised that, but it was a lovely exercise for my Visual Beatle Identification skills. But again...

I don't think they have been given Cockney accents, @Beatlebug. As a Londoner, born in Bermondsey (the area around London Bridge), I know calling someone "Duck" is much more a Northern term than London. Though it is more Manchester than Liverpool.

12927-1.jpgImage Enlarger

This sketch by Stanley Franklin was printed in the Daily Mirror of 19th February, 1968. The family arriving in search of enlightenment are the Garnetts, Alf, wife Else, son-in-law Mike and daughter, Rita. They had just finished their acclaimed third series of the BBC sitcom 'Till Death Us Do Part', written by Johnny Speight.

The Garnett's were a somwhat fractious family. Alf, played by Warren Mitchell was am 'old school tory', highly conservative and downright racist. Mike, portrayed by Tony Booth, was his polar opposite, a 'dyed-in-wool' Labour supporter, and devotee of the reforming Labour Government led by the pragmatic Horold Wilson (portrayed in the first of these offerings). Both Else (Dandy Nichols) and Rita (Una Stubbs) were counterweights to the male characters and carefully scripted by Speight to act as voices of reason in polarised atguments between the other two characters.

I am not too sure who the quartette in the ashram are, and would welcome suggestions.
Tony Booth's daughter, ironically, married a future English Prime Minister (Of whom Booth was scathingly critical). She is also well known as a leading Human Rights lawyer

Una Stubbs, a former dancer who had starred in Cliff Richards' Summer Holiday film can currently be seen as Mrs. Hudson in the 'Sherlock' dramas

Where did you find the magazine in their house, @vonbontee? I'm sure that cartoon was the only thing of interest to you in the whole issue.

LOTSA good stuff in there! Like reviews of stereo equipment, and song lyrics by Shel Silverstein, and a Vargas painting. And the cartoons. And the obvious. (Tina Louise!)

How do you remember the issue so well? Did you snitch it and keep it?
