"Beatles, The" (series) by The Beatles – **

First released: 1965

Ok, so they're corny and poorly animated, but the cartoon series that ran from 1965-1969 on ABC TV in the US isn’t all that bad. Of course, the successor "Yellow Submarine" movie is far greater. I have a bootleg that contains all of the cartoons and The Beatles would be wise in releasing this stuff again legitimately, but I know they don’t like them. The cartoons are about as good as the other Saturday morning crap being made at the time, and they remind me strongly of "The New Three Stooges" cartoons made around the same time, which weren’t the greatest either. The song portions are the best part and I think they still would entertain the kiddies (and their parents) today.
