When the music hating Blue Meanies take over Pepperland and freeze everyone within it, including the protectors, Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Captain Fred and his Yellow Submarine recruit The Beatles to help save Pepperland. Along the way, they fall through the Sea of Time, Sea of Nothing, Sea of Holes and more. They meet Jeremy Hillary Boob Ph.D. and take him with them along the adventure. When at Pepperland, the Beatles "rally the land to rebellion" and take down the Blue Meanies, the four-headed Meanie dog and the Dreadful Flying Glove (with the songs "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band", "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Hey Bulldog", "All You Need is Love"). In the end, we see all four live-action Beatles singing "All Together Now". Written by

When the film was being restored for DVD, the producers obtained The Beatles' permission to remix the songs in order to produce a proper 5.1 music track. Engineer Peter Cobbin went back to The Beatles' original four-track work tapes and assembled true multi-track masters for each of the 15 songs, enabling him to achieve stereo effects and adding clarity that had never previously been possible. Many Beatles fans objected to this, although the surviving Beatles themselves reportedly approved the new mixes. 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.
