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

In 2012, Robert Zemeckis, who was set to do a 3-D computer animated remake of this film, said he was no longer interested. He told Moviehole, "That would have been a great one to bring the Beatles back to life. But it's probably better not to be remade - you're always behind the 8-ball when you do a remake." See more »
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 »
Hey, would you believe me if I told you I was being followed by a yellow submarine?
Um, uh, no. No, I would not.
I, uh, didn't think you would. I could've sworn it was a yellow submarine. But that isn't logical now, is it? It must've been one of them "Unidentified Flying Cupcakes". One of the figments of me imagination. But I don't have an imagination.

The lyric "All Together Now" is shown in several different languages while the song plays at the end. See more »
The American version had a brief (less than one second) scene of Old Fred and the Mayor dancing together happily, bringing closure to the initial scenes of the movie. This footage was not included in the redone American version. See more »
if this is a magic land, then this is Pepperland. If this is a magic film about this magic land, then this is Yellow Submarine. I believe, and many will agree with me on that, YS is the cleverest and most wonderful artifact of the hippie era. Here, you see no blatant drug references, no rude words, no endless acid space jams. No, here, the essence of the Flower Power time is represented as a smart, vivid, multicolored fairy tale. The idea that music may save the world and that the yellow submarine may be an escape from bleak, dull gray world is great. But even if we put this philosophizers aside, we view hilariously funny, colorful, brisk movie, with The Fab Four as a brilliant cast. And the lines! They are great, as when Ringo does exactly what the captain told him not to, or when The Nowhere Man starts his unforgettable gibberish, or when at the very end the real Bealtled appear, with all those quips and jokes. This is like a sweet, long, and very kind dream. May it never end!
