December 1st, 1963 The Beatles release "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in the U.S. Today marks the reclaiming of America in the name of the queen.

Britain's Fab Four released their first single in the United States forty-six years ago on this very date. Eventually, as John Lennon once famously said, they became bigger than Jesus. Quite the accomplishment for four boys from Liverpool, or for that matter, anyone. Below we showcase a vintage mop-top animated adventure in which Beatle victory is achieved by serenading an octopus with today's signature tune.
