(1968, George Dunning) When Pepperland, an animated musical undersea fantasy world, is attacked by the music-hating Blue Meanies, it’s up to John, Paul, George and Ringo to jump on that yellow submarine, disguise themselves as Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and save the day. Filled with Beatles classics like “All You Need is Love,” “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” and the title tune.

The singalong version, which features a bouncing yellow ball encouraging kids and adults alike to sing along with the psychedelically-clad foursome, is presented exclusively at Film Forum. Both versions will be screened on both days at 11am. DCP. Approx. 88 mins.

Reviews

“A music-based animation film for the ages! Pure charm, expressed in fantastical imagery.”
– Roger Ebert

“Returns today’s viewers to a sweeter, gentler time that everyone can access — not the tie-dyed ‘60s, a time beset by violence often tidied up by a romantic posterity, but childhood… The easily parroted chorus of this film’s title track emphasizes a childlike unity; we all live on the yellow submarine, everyone getting along and holding hands. All the youngsters really need is love.”
– Charles Bramesco, New York Magazine

“Lovingly restored, so that the colors pop and throb the way they did at the time… An amazing Sixties time-capsule.”
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
