And Your Bird Can Sing

That was the theme to the Beatles cartoon that ran on ABC from 1965 to 1968, althoug that's what MTV used when they ran it in 1985. I have a couple of them on my computer, but until I get a DVD burner, it's stuck here. Yep, it's the forerunner of every Saturday Morning cartoon that came afterwards, from Scooby on down, plotwise: Go to a new town, get in trouble, musical montage, solve problem, everyone dances away happy. Simple enough. But, you gotta remember that this was John, Paul, George aand Ringo, so the music has to be good. Say what you will about them these days, they're still my favorites and they stilll sound as fresh as a Coldplay disc to me. If you've never seen the 'toon version of the Fab Four (other than "Yellow Submarine"), then check out this. The link to the cartoon is below, so scroll down and head off to Strawberry Fields.
