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

This film underwent restoration work in 1998 for release in 1999. Since it was the original British version that was restored, American audiences finally got to see the five minutes of footage that had been missing in the original 85-minute U.S. version, including the "Hey Bulldog" sequence, which was deleted for unknown reasons.

Paul and George's shirts change colors throughout the movie. Paul's shirt varies from a more purplish hue to an almost-black hue, and George's shirt varies from a greenish-brown to a more orange-y-brown. See more »
"Yellow Submarine" is my favorite movie of all time! The animation is a perfect psychedelic display that would make Peter Max proud, and rival anything out of the Disney studios. This movie made me love the Beatles, and might just do the same for you. And, if you can, be sure to see the version with the "Hey Bulldog" sequence. I'd never seen that one until recently, during its revival. So that was a special bonus!
