Fifty Years Ago Today

As Tom Sito informs us:

John, Paul, George and Ringo go to Cartoonland on this day in 1965 when a Saturday morning cartoon series starring the four of them premieres on ABC and is a ratings smash. ...

All told, there were thirty nine episodes spread over three years. The iconic Paul Frees voiced John and George. Lance Persival stood in for Paul and Ringo. Happily, the songs embedded in all of the half hours were performed by the originals.

H/t Tom Sito.
