Yellow Submarine (1968, The Beatles)

Yellow Submarine, arguably one of the best animation films of all time, designed for kids and adults alike in its oscillation between wacky characters and surreal imagination.

The Beatles agree to accompany Captain Fred in his Yellow Submarine and go to poor old Pepperland to free it from the life-denying, music-hating Blue Meanies.

George, John, Paul and Ringo are lovingly recreated as cartoons, even down to the way they walked in real life, and the film is suffused with a hazy, psychedelic air which no innocent could think had anything to do with chemical substances.
