Saturday Morning Cartoons: The Beatles
Has any band ever sold out and retained their credibility as well as The Beatles? Maybe it's because they broke up without riding out their legacy too long; perhaps it's because the music was just that damn good. Either way, one interesting artifact of the "Beatles mania" four decades ago was a syndicated cartoon featuring the band.
Airing from 1965-1969, the cartoon featured many performances of Beatles' classics by their cartoon counterparts interspersed among ridiculous storylines. A few of my favorites are presented below. Saturday mornings are for cartoons, right?
"Tomorrow Never Knows":
"Run for Your Life":
"Strawberry Fields Forever":
