* ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles'' cartoons used three sets of opening title cards. The cartoons made in London had each of the letters in "Beatles" expand and retract with the opening seven notes (not always in order) then do it with the notes in the rest of the title card music with the last seven notes following the letters in order and the episode title fading in. The Australian cartoons followed the first seven notes, then the expanding letters only in single tempo to the music. The Canadian cartoons had the second half of the music abbreviated, thus rendering the expanding letters out of sync.
