Yellow Submarine

Buy the ticket, take the trip.

One of the loopier animated films ever crafted, and one of my favorites.

The Beatles, or at least anonymous voice actors filling in for the AWOL Fab Four, land in Pepperland, where life is freaky, and Blue Meanies run amok.

Despite playing the film frequently on the in-store TV’s back in my Videoville days, I only recently discovered my favorite section — Hey Bulldog — was not part of the original American release.

It played in Europe, but didn’t hit the USA until the film was restored in 1999.

Now you know, and knowing’s half the battle.
