Should anyone have any contacts to these people, I'd be interested in interviewing them.

The scripts were done by Dennis Marks who was head of Marvels cartoon studio in the eighties. Voice recordings were done in Los Angelas before being shipped to the overseas studios.

In 1965 Al Brodax (the shows execuctive producer) got the idea to save money on production by handing out great chunks of "The Beatles" production to Australia, England, Mexico and Canada. It took four weeks to animate each film.

TVC-London (who made the
Yellow Submarine film in 1968),
had a backlog of cartoons to
make in the first season, so
several cartoons were handed
to Canawest studio in Vancouver,
In all about 70-72 cartoons were
made plus 35-36 singalong segments.
