Was thinking about them the other day actually while contemplating a post in the five influential drummers thread. Ringo Starr was the first I remember due to my parents listening to The Beatles and watching these cartoons as a kid, huh, huh, yeah.

I think I have all of the digital files. All the episodes.
Also picked up the Beatles Christmas messages.
Those are slick little animated pieces.
Really interesting choices made.
As a kid, the “And Your Bird Can Sing” one really stuck with me.
Pretty much all of the Revolver ones did.
Loved those.

I’d forgotten about these, though I do remember watching them as a kid.

I vividly recall watching these episodes as a kid. One specific scene I recall was John, Paul, and George unplugging their guitars, followed by Ringo unplugging his drums, which then proceed to deflate like a beach ball. And this was well before the advent of electronic drums. Unfortunately, I've yet to come across this scene in any of the episodes posted online.

Wow, I seem to have totally missed these...and I was at prime cartoon-watching age in 1975. Maybe I was beginning to phase out of Saturday morning cartoons by then; who knows. But I don't remember them. I was all about The Bugs Bunny Show, Fat Albert, Scooby-Doo, Hong Kong Phooey.....but I just don't remember a Beatles cartoon show.

You would have missed it at that age. The show was only broadcast from 1965-1969. It wasn't rebroadcast in syndication until the late '80s.

It was in the outro on each episode
