  • A big fan of the Beatles!

    As a huge fan of the Beatles, I think that this is a cute cartoon. The Beatles had nothing to do with it themselves despite their music. The voices of John & George are done by the same person but doesn't quite get their voices. While the voices of Paul & Ringo, again done by the same person are accurately portrayed. The band tries to get some peace to rehearse in A Hard Day's Night while the second one I Want to Hold Your Hand, helps a lovestruck octupus reunite with his true love, another octopus. Really a cute cartoon if you are a Beatles fan!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The diving bell in "I Want to Hold Your Hand" apparently has no glass in the windows, because the Beatles can stick their hands and heads through. But without windows, how do they breathe?

  • QUOTES (3)

    • From A Hard Day's Night
      John: That settles it. We have to find somewheres else to rehearse.
      Ringo: Lads, I know the perfect place. It's big and it's empty.
      Paul: That sounds fine, but how do we all fit inside your head?

    • (Into to the Sing-A-Long.)
      Paul: Who in blazers are you suppose to be?
      Ringo Cupid, of course. Romantic, ain't it? (He laughs and shoots an arrow which ricochets around the stage than knocks him down.)
      Paul: Did you say you're Cupid or stupid?
      Ringo: Cupid with a "K"

    • From I Want to Hold Your Hand

      Paul: (After sticking his head out of the diving bell and being kissed by an amorous octopus) Say, John, have you ever been kissed by an octopus?
      John: Once, when I was very young.
      Paul: Then you're the one she wants! (Shoves John's head out of diving bell)
