Saturday Morning Cartoon

The 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death was Dec. 8 and I while I came across this Saturday Morning Cartoon a couple of months ago I decided to hold off on it until now.

From 1965 to 1969 ABC aired a Beatles cartoon on Saturday morning. The band had nothing to do with the series although their songs were used in the episodes. Each episode featured a short story followed by a sing-along piece. The series predated the Yellow Submarine movie and the band hated the cartoon.
