    Re : cats that look like Hitler - Two quick questions - 1) before Hitler came to power, were there such cats? And who did they look like? Chaplin? 2) WHAT POSSIBLE EVOLUTIONARY ADVANTAGE COULD BE GAINED BY RESEMBLING HITLER?

    Thoughts like these keep me up at night.

    Pop history #15.

    The Beatles cartoon show ran for about four years during the mid to late sixties. Each five-minute episode was crafted around a different Beatles song, and the animation while low-budget was whimsical and amusing.

    I read that the Beatles cartoon was the first "made especially for Saturday morning TV" cartoon, creating a profitable niche that all three networks (and eventually Fox) spent four decades filling.

    I was a nipper in the sixties, and have many fond memories and vegging out in front of a B&W TV on Saturday morning. But while I recall many of the shows listed on nostalgia sites, I honestly don't remember the Beatles cartoon.

    The Beatles show is one of the earliest things I remember watching on TV, when I was about 3 or 4 years old in the late sixties.

    Which brings me to Pop history #16.

    Yellow Submarine, the 1968 film which led to my enduring love of psychedelia. Disney announced in March of this year that Robert Zemeckis will not be proceeding with his previously announced remake of this film (thank you Jesus) in the same motion-capture style he used in Beowulf. The project is now reportedly being shopped around to other studios; I'd like to see Matt Groening take a crack at this, but it'll probably languish forever in Development Hell.

    Ah, Yellow Submarine! I got the lunchbox in second grade or so, and spent many hours trying to figure out WHAT THE HELL WAS GOING ON in the various panels. For whatever reason, I never saw it in the theater as a kid.

    Eventually, my dad brought the film home. He taught a high school film appreciation course and would bring home a 16mm projector and the film of the week. I tell you, I got a wide exposure to cinema as a kid. But animated stuff like Yellow Submarine was a rareity. Man, blew my mind it did!
