Dorothy Gale is swept away from a farm in Kansas to a magical land of Oz in a tornado and embarks on a quest with her new friends to see the Wizard who can help her return home to Kansas and help her friends as well.
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

Blue Meanies have six fingers on each hand. This is probably poking fun at the common practice among animators of dropping the pinkie finger when drawing hands, leaving the character with four fingers. See more »
Just before Ringo pulls a lever, he says that he is a "born lever-puller," a joke on the Beatles being from Liverpool. However, the proper term for a citizen of Liverpool is Liverpudlian. See more »

The European version contained one extra song, "Hey, Bulldog!", deleted from U.S. prints. This version was re-released to theatres worldwide in 1999 in a digitally restored print with a re-worked soundtrack, plus the "Hey, Bulldog!" number in its original context. 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.
