What's it About

When the Blue Meanies take over Pepperland and turn its inhabitants to stone, lone survivor Lord Admiral escapes in a yellow submarine to London, hoping to enlist the help of the Beatles. Traveling through strange landscapes, the Fab Four bring their psychedelic pop, characteristic wit, and all-important message of love to the beleaguered land.

Why we love it

"Yellow" remains an inspired fusion of Beatles music and the vibrant, tie-dye color sensibility of artist Peter Max that became a visual signature for the times. This offbeat, wildly original animated fantasy holds up as a great movie for younger children and their parents (as well as us aging flower children). All the dry British humor and endless punning make this magical mystery tour a decidedly trippy ride. Get on board!
