I was 13 and I can remember their "long" hair was very shocking and unsettling for parents! I was at home watching the Ed Sullivan Show. I'm not sure why this particular group resonated so much with young teens but I was among them.

I was just a small child, at home in California. I do remember watching the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, we always watched it. I had a teenage sister at that time who just loved the Beatles...had their posters up.
Patty, yes, they would be valuable, if they were still around. Unfortunately, my sister and I ripped them off the wall, thinking we were doing the right thing...we overheard our dad telling my teenage sister, she shouldn't have used plastic cement.
Patty, It wasn't funny at the time, my sister cried, and was mad, we were scared! The walll was a mess, she had glued the entire sheet to the wall, we ripped/peeled most of it off. No, 2-sided tape wasn't avai. then.
I was 7 years old but The Ed Sullivan Show was a staple performance in our home. I was watching the Beatles with my mom, dad and older brother. I can remember exactly what TV we had. Didn't know then how epic that day was to become.
