Saw the TV show? Now read the book!, June 30 2001
At age 12, I delighted in watching the Beatles cartoon series when it premeired on ABC in 1965. Along with radio and bubblegum cards, it was for me a major connection to the Beatles. As much a fan of animation as I am to rock 'n' roll, it was a thrill to read "Beatletoons" for two reasons: (1) the author's passion for his subject matter which really shows and (2) the extent to which the author shares technical data regarding production and marketing of the TV series without apparent fear of going over the heads of the readers.
These days general overviews of the Beatles seem to be no longer needed (the Beatles recent "Anthology" being the BIG exception). Books that focus on specific aspects of the Beatles are what fans appreciate the most. "Beatletoons" is an excellent example.
The only improvements that I can suggest for future editions, if any, are that the book be printed on a higher grade of paper and with more color artwork from the cartoons.
