    I'm not sure who owns the rights to these, but it would great to have a DVD set of the complete collection of the Beatles Cartoon Show back from the 60's. Besides the music,
    the cartoons were pretty entertaining themselves. So to whomever owns these, how about putting them out?

    I think Apple owns these, so I wouldn't see them on DVD soon... It's well known that the Beatles hated this show.

    I also want the Beatles cartoon show put onto DVD. Even though The Beatles hate this show, they need to understand that money will be made if this show is put onto DVD.

    I believe that while Apple and EMI would certainly own all the music featured in the show, and as such could quash a release, the cartoons themselves are owned by King Features Syndicate, part of the Hearst Corporation.
    Hearst also controls the rights to Popeye, which is why there has never been a proper video issue of the classic Fleischer Paramount cartoons -- they have yet to reach terms with Turner.

    Didn't MTV shows these awhile back (in the last 20 years)?

    I'd definitely buy these, but I'm not holding my breath.

    MTV did show them for a while, which is the source of the bootleg tapes that make the rounds. Not that I would know anything about that. :b

    I loved those cartoons when I was a kid.
