** MTV never showed the first season intro due to a scene where Ringo impersonates a Chinaman. They also left out the outro at the end of every episode due to a scene where Paul yanks on a Native American woman's nose because he thinks she's Ringo in disguise.

Produced by Al Brodax (who would later go on to produce ''WesternAnimation/CoolMcCool'' and ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'') for King Features, who produced a number of other cartoon series based on its own popular comic strips. Notable in that making the show was literally a world-wide effort, and an early example of farming out animation overseas to save money. A majority of the production was done in England, but episodes were also farmed out to studios in Australia, Canada, and Holland. This lends the show a bit of discontinuity when it comes to animation style; the Australian episodes are particularly prone to poor quality because Australia had a limited animation industry before the show arrived there and therefore fewer experienced professionals to draw from.

* StockAudioClip: Always, and for no reason other than [[TheyJustDidntCare to save money and time]]. It can get pretty awkward hearing Paul say [[Myth/RobinHood "Rob'n]] ''[[MemeticMutation Hood?]]'' [[MemeticMutation Heneverhappened."]] [[RunningGag about once a minute]] in "Taxman."

to:

* StockAudioClip: Always, An unusual variation; dialogue recorded for the show is reused in the manner of a StockAudioClip whenever possible, resulting in scripts that are filled with repetition so the exact same voice clips can be played over and over. This is done for no reason other than [[TheyJustDidntCare to save money and time]]. It can get pretty awkward hearing Paul say [[Myth/RobinHood "Rob'n]] ''[[MemeticMutation Hood?]]'' [[MemeticMutation Heneverhappened."]] [[RunningGag about once a minute]] in "Taxman."

* TooDumbToLive:
** Ringo, [[IdiotBall usually]]. Why Ringo never sued King Features is completely unknown. In comparison to his [[OnlySaneMan actual]] [[TheQuietOne persona]], the show's [[TheDitz portrayal]] of him borders on libel.

* MisBlamed: Ringo Starr wasn't happy with [[TooDumbToLive his portrayal]] in the show and complained to Lance Percival. Lance kindly explained that he just did the voices and pointed Ringo in the direction of the writers.

A cartoon series that ran from 1965 to 1969 following the [[HilarityEnsues wacky hijinks of]] Music/TheBeatles. Notable for [[TropeMaker being the first]] [[CelebrityToons cartoon about actual people]] made for television.

** Played with in "I Feel Fine" when Paul has to repeatedly rescue an actress from a DeathCourse of a movie set. Then again, since everything's phony, they're both never really in danger.

** "Don't Bother Me" uses the "Ringo sleeping on the wrong end of the bed" gag from ''{{Help}}'', and the second opening is a big shout out to Film/JamesBond films. Also in that episode, they face a Generic Archvillain and a very obvious Mook. He's the spitting image of Oddjob from ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''.
