The singing group, The Beatles, at the height of their popularity, made this cartoon of a land that is taken over by the Blue Meanies. They are recruited by an escapee to come and bring joy (and music) back to the land. The techniques are quite psychedelic in the cartoons and much care was taken to have the walks and mannerisms of the individual Beatles cartoons match the originals. Written by

When the producers approached The Beatles about this film, the group, which hated the TV cartoon show of them (The Beatles, also produced by Al Brodax and George Dunning), agreed to it only as an easy way of completing their movie contract. As such, they contributed only a few old songs and four quickly produced numbers: "Only a Northern Song", "Hey Bulldog", "All Together Now" and "It's All Too Much". However, when they saw the finished film, they were so impressed by it that they decided to appear in a short live action epilogue to the film. See more »
In the closed captions during the George Harrison song "It's Only A Northern Song", the captions instead read "It's Only A NORMAL Song". George used the word Northern because he wanted to complete his contract with Northern Songs. See more »
I bet you're thinking, "another Beatles movie?" but that's not really what this is. A wonderfully vibrant and gorgeous cartoon, and a treat for the eye and ear. This is how vivid and bright all cartoons should be. Great soundtrack of course, and the Beatles make a real cameo at the very end. Watch if you are a Beatle fan like me, or simply if you want a fun cartoon. They did a wonderful job remastering and cleaning it up.
