That sounds... awful.

Apart from not animating The Beatles, not including any actual Beatles music but rather cover versions, and appearing to be aimed at much younger children, it sounds almost identical!

That be why I say reminds me. Doesn't need to be the same to remind you otherwise some Beatles moments wouldn't be so.

If it was the same they might as well just show the Beatles Cartoons - and laugh when Apple go from Granny Smith to Laxton's Superb to Cox.

Kids are so perceptive. If you like something, they'll be sure to like it when they're young if they see you're happy. Show them your Beatlemaniac and they'll go crazy too. The real question is how to get tweens into them. Maybe angst?

Good idea. Let them read the "Was John haunted by his inner emptiness?" Thread.

I don't think you have to.

My kids are now 11 and 13 and I'm still deep in re-discovering everything about the band, so every once in awhile, a song will be on the stereo at home and one of them will relate to me an occurrence that they experienced.  Usually, it happens at school.

My daughter recently told me that she was between classes and as she was going into her next classroom, the teacher had the Beatles playing on a small boom box  and one of the kids remarked about the teacher being lame or something and was quickly "informed" that, while the teacher may indeed be "lame", the Beatles were, in fact, awesome... by several other kids in the class... and that they knew the lyrics to the song being played... because they were singing along.  She said all this because she was shocked to learn she wasn't the only one who knew the words, saying lots of kids know their songs.

My son was listening to all this and corroborated it, telling me kids in his grade will point to one (of the many) Beatles T-shirts he wears, telling him they like the band, too, and then asking where he got the shirt.

This happens constantly.  Or maybe I'm just hyper-aware of it.  I've said before that I have a Beatles ringtone on my phone for each member of my family.  It never fails that, no matter which one calls, wherever I am, people hear the ringtone and smile.  And some start singing.  Where I work (military base in Japan), not many are my age... they're all very young, respective to myself.  And I'm late to the game.

It's not like I indoctrinate them.  They're just aware of who their dad's favorite band is and they fall into it.  Like we all did.

My spouse is ... a bit younger than myself.  a-hard-days-night-george-10and when we started dating, I was very much into my late '70s hard rock phase.  It seemed that was something we wouldn't have in common, her being more of a soft rock/pop fan.  But the first time I played the Beatles, she immediately knew the songs and commented that at least we have that some common ground.

Trailer for 'Beat Bugs'.

I dont think it looks too bad; the cover stinks but the actual cartoon looks decent.

That's a cool trailer. Too bad it's for kids. XD I'm interested in how Sia would sing Blackbird .

I want to write a musical with Beatles songs--sort of like Mama Mia with Abba and Across The Universe except modeled for theater.

Let them chew on this while they are teething. (Strange places I end up on the 'net. This find is the result wandering round the web with information gleaned from a scholarly, peer-reviewed, research-based article.)

Yes but its related to the world of electronic drum apps when they lose the beat every now and then. They've been trying to fix it for years but somehow the beat just keeps getting lost and weird fills appear.

When our 3 month old starts crying for no reason, playing With The Beatles shuts him up in a matter of seconds.  

Man am I sick of that album.  

Singing 'Til There Was You is an effective lullaby though.

Incidentally, we sang Yellow Submarine All Together Now , Tomorrow Never Knows and When I'm 64 at our primary school and I just thought they were traditional nursery rhymes, so I was indoctrinated by the state at an early age!

In the US, you can borrow some by being a foster parent.

You could then classicaly condition the child to respond positively to Beatles music.

I always try to get babies of friends to say "Beatles" for their first word. One of these days it will work.

Perhaps I should have been clearer.

Well my parents did nothing but play them all the time. I heard them in the womb. They just instilled it in me.

 

As for me if I were to have kids, which no, I too, do not want any, I'd do the same. Just play that music in the house all the time and make it a comforting thing.
