Plot Summary

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".

Trivia The Beatles hated The Beatles (1965), the TV cartoon show of them, which was also produced by Al Brodax and George Dunning. When the producers approached them about this film, the group agreed only as an easy way of completing their movie contract. They contributed a few old songs and four quickly produced numbers: "Only a Northern Song", "Hey Bulldog", "All Together Now", and "It's All Too Much." They were so impressed by the finished film that they decided to appear in a short live action epilogue to the film. See more »
Goofs 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 »

Quotes Ringo: Hey, I wonder what'll happen if I pull this lever.
Old Fred: Oh, you mustn't do that now.
Ringo: Can't help it. I'm a born "Liver-pooler."
