We’re going to indulge in 2 of our favourite things now, presenting to you The Simpsons’ Beatles! We’re living in the age of the crossover, with things you wouldn’t believe coming together in a nerd’s fantasy somewhere but what’s more – most of them are working! Be it a Batman Lego movie, Super Smash Bros. or the MCU the most important aspect is that the approach is well thought through, respectful to all sides and are all contained within a story that is actually worth telling.
We’ll get deeper into this some other time, but one place became commonplace to see was The Simpsons. Right from the off, guest stars would lend their voices to either cartoon versions of themselves or newly scripted characters to be a part of some of the biggest television events of the century. And as the show grew, the more ambitious they became in attaining the biggest pop culture stars.
Let’s hear it folks, introducing… The Beatles!
