i have a 5 year old babygirl and i won't be letting her watch this.if they had used the beatles instead of cover artist versions then i'd let her watch it.but all this does is show how beatles music shouldn't be redone.just like john wayne movies shouldn't e redone.don't mess with perfection.warner brothers animated will be making a beatles movie called meet the beatles using the real beatles music so i will wait for that to show my daughter.
