When the music hating Blue Meanies take over Pepperland and freeze everyone within it, including the protectors, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Captain Fred (Lance Percival) 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. (Dick Emery) 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. Pepper's 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 amongst animators of dropping the pinkie finger when drawing hands, leaving the character with four fingers. See more »
In the beginning when the Chief Blue Meanie is holding up Max and scolding him, the colors/stripes on Max's boots switch back and forth a couple times. See more »
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 »
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.
