First airing in 1965, 'The Beatles' survived an unlikely 5 seasons. The plot involved the Fab Four from Liverpool, involved in numerous unlikely, mostly comic adventures, interspersed with Beatles songs. Particularly in the early years, these were often less known album tracks. The voice artists were American.

The Beatles objected to the 'Amerification' of their Liverpool accents, which resulted in the show getting limited airing in Britain. Considering the enormous changes in The Beatles' music over the period of the series' production, it is fairly amazing that it survived the changes from the loveable but naive fab four of 1965, until the politicially and mystically identified figures of 1969. In fact, the series almost outlasted the group.
The series is slated to appear on DVD in the forseeable future.
