|Beatles author discloses why he loves the Beatles Toons|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Friday, 12/05/08 6:13 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
In a new article on Fixing A Hole, Mitchell Axelrod, author of the fascinating book "Beatletoons - The Real Story Behind The Cartoon Beatles," tells why he has been in love with the Beatles cartoon show since the first day it premiered on ABC TV in September, 1965.
Mitchell says he was hooked on the Beatles since he was two. "I was always a big lover of cartoons and in September of 1965 when The Beatles cartoon series premiered, I was in heaven. How much sweeter could it get, cartoons filled with Beatles music. According to my mom, I would sit and sing every note of every song in each episode and giggle at the antics of the cartoon Beatles."
But he was young and doesn't remember them too much from their early airings. That all changed, however, in 1970, when they came to TV in repeats in NY on Channel 5. He says they "made me feel secure. The Beatles cartoons made me feel the innocence of a few years gone by that would never ever return. Sometimes I would miss the bus on purpose just to watch the full half hour, which did NOT make my mother happy."
