THE BEATLES - 1965 TV CARTOON




I'm a big fan of JOHN, PAUL, GEORGE and RINGO...THE BEATLES! Being a Cartoonist, I've always loved the 1965 ABC-TV cartoon versions of the Fab Four. I put together this set of color cartoon BEATLES art for a licensing proposal that never happened. Each BEATLE here looks as he did on an existing model sheet. What sensational caricatures and designs! I re-inked the model sheet art with a brush and gave the lads color. THE BEATLES logo and individual names are hand-lettered. There's been some really nice merchandise produced over the last few years, but I'd love to see more top-notch licensed product based on THE BEATLES 1965 TV cartoon!

You do a great art!
I love that Beatles caricatures and the Top Cat illustration in your blog!
Ringo is the funniest I think... But he was the funniest in the Richard Lester´s films :O)

Someone was running one of these shows a few weeks back on cable... they had an incredibly weird sequence based on "Strawberry Fields"... even weirder than the actual "video"!
