The Beatles was an American animated television series featuring the fanciful and musical misadventures of the extraordinarily popular British rock band of the same name. It ran from 1965 to 1969 on ABC in the USA. Each episode has a name of a Beatles song, so the history is based on its lyrics and it is also played sometime in the episode.
The series consisted of short animated stories that essentially were intended to set up the visual illustration of Beatles songs that are played in their entirety. In addition, there were sing a long sequences with simpler imagery complementing the full lyrics of particular songs.
The Beatles had nothing to do with the series' production beyond the use of their music recordings. (American actor Paul Frees did the voices of John and George while Lance Percival, of the Carry On series, did the more authentic sounding voices of Paul and Ringo.) In fact, the band disdained the series for its poor quality which discouraged them from participating significantly in the later animated feature film, Yellow Submarine.
