On Nov. 4, 1963, the Beatles strode onstage to politely thunderous applause at London's Prince of Wales Theatre, as the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret gazed fondly amid the crowd. But these four charming Liverpool lads were clearly royalty themselves -- at least in pop music terms.

50 Years Ago: ‘Beatlemania’ Is Born

When the Beatles took the stage fifty years ago today (Oct. 13 -- ignore the date on this video) to appear on the variety show 'Sunday Night at the London Palladium,' they were four lads armed with the simple tools of their early classics--a bass, two guitars, drum kit.

48 Years Ago: ‘The Beatles’ Animated Series Premieres

48 years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play . . .

Actually, that's not true, but it was 48 years ago -- on Sept. 25, 1965 -- that ABC first broadcast 'The Beatles,' a 30-minute Saturday morning cartoon that became an instant ratings smash for the network. Several years before they all lived in a yellow submarine (or so the song claimed), the legendary British rockers were first immortalized in animated glory, lending their music -- but not their actual speaking voices -- to the show.
