The Beatles first film since "Help" was largely Paul McCartney's project. The story follows a bus load of eccentric characters on a magic journey through the English countryside. Rather than a unified narrative, it becomes a series of psychedelic clips promoting various songs including "The Fool on the Hill," "Blue Jay Way," "Your Mother Should Know," "I Am the Walrus" and "Magical Mystery Tour." The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band are seen in a strip club playing "Death Cab for Cutie." Written by

The show appeared on the Disney Channel in the US during the 1990s, with the strip club scene (featuring the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band performing "Death Cab For Cutie" behind dancer Jan Carson) edited out. See more
