TV: B is for...

Beatles, The

PREPOSTEROUS POPPERMOST Yank animated antics featuring the nice one, the sarky one, the dull one and the hopeless big-nosed one who was always getting them into trouble. Above-average fare for a seventies summer morning on ITV, to be fair, mainly for the tunes and exaggerated mop-top haircuts. It was also miles better than Yellow Submarine. Veteran toon-voice PAUL “ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE” FREES was on nasal duty for John and George. Rumoured All-New John Lennon Show with middle bit featuring animated Private Yoko Ono running amok with giant bags and naked arses in military camp turned out to be false.

    I think Bob Godfrey had a hand in this series. The weirdest episode featured the mop-tops, still in their Carnaby Street suits, singing ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ from the Revolver album, a song (as if you didn’t know) about LSD. “You know…for kids!”
