"This is almost as funny as the Rutles' 2 CD's, if not just as funny (I grew up on both the classic Bugs Bunny cartoons and the Beatles' albums so for me, it's a match made in heaven)! The musicians and vocalists stayed true to both the original Beatles' classics and the Looney Tunes' character personalities. It all starts out with the Fab Looneys onstage performing "She Loves You"- with Daffy as John, Bugs as Paul, Elmer as George ("I hope I don't bwake a stwing!") and Taz as Ringo (No, Taz, your drumsticks are not food)!! There's talk of Porky once being a member! Then Elmer introduces his favourite Swami (and Taz thinks he said salami)- the "Fool on the Hill." "Why did you take us all the way to Indeeana, Doc?" The Fool's favourite mantra is: "Babyyourearichman, babyyourearichman,..." etc., which Daffy glady chants- "Richeth may not intereth you but they thure do intereth me!") and his advice for life is "Come together right now over me and we can work it out!" One of the funniest moments is Daffy attempting to sing "Yesterday" with several distractions a la "Duck Amuck." "hey, whereth the muthic?" Yosemite Sam sings "Help!" as the fur-bearin' critter pulls a few pranks on him. Bugs and Taz sing "Penny Lane" where Bugs stops by for a coupla carrots and he has no idea what a finger pie is! Elmer gets by "with a wittow help fwom my fwiends" and Bugs thinks he means the rest of the Looney Tunes gang (Yosemite Sam proclaims "You shore do know how to throw a party, Elmer!"). Bugs and Daffy compete for the last goodbye in "Hello Goodbye." Finally, you can hear the Coyote trying hard to catch the Road Runner on "The Long and Winding Road." As others have mentioned, this is a great CD to get your children interested in the Beatles (watching classic cartoons like "Baton Bunny" and "Rhapsody Rabbit" helped me to get more interested in classical music!)."

"One will never really understand "Fool on a Hill" until one comes to terms with Elmer Fudd's defining interpretation. This IS the finest moment in the history of music - at least in the Occident. To listen - to truly listen - is to experience the sublime fullness of life and its antecedents. And that, as the poet says, is mood lube to me. The other cuts are not to be taken lightly, either."
This is very funny.

"This album is a great idea. It is a lot like the "Alvin and the Chipmunks Sing the Beatles" style. On this album we hear the very recognizable voices of Bugs, Daffy, etc. which adds a very nice touch to it. If you want to get your young kids to start liking the Beatles this is the first album to give to them. All songs are very well done, except for the ones sung by Elmer Fudd. They are still entertaining, but a little disapointing."
