My favorite animated film of all time remains THE YELLOW SUBMARINE

This movie was so far out. The artists and animators must have had a blast making this movie. It is one of those films that no matter how many times you watch it you still see something new. My vhs copy is worn but I can't seem to locate a good dvd of it. I was lucky to see it in the theater 3 or 4 times.

I love the "sea of holes" and the big blue meanies" the best.

My talented artist daughter drew the Yellow Submarine and the Meanies for my birthday but I don't have them scanned. They are hanging in my office. Love em!

Here is some wiki on TYS:

Yellow Submarine is a 1968 animated feature film based on the music of The Beatles. It is also the title for the soundtrack album to the feature film, released as part of The Beatles' music catalogue. The film was directed by Canadian-born animation producer George Dunning, and produced by United Artists and King Features Syndicate. The Beatles themselves appear only in the closing scene of the film, with the Beatles characters in the film voiced by other actors.

The Plot:

Pepperland is a cheerful music-loving paradise under the sea, protected by Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which falls under a surprise attack by the music-hating Blue Meanies; the attackers seal the band inside a music-proof bubble, then turn the Pepperlanders into statues and drain the countryside itself of colour.

Sea of Time - where time flows both forwards and backwards to the tune of "When I'm Sixty-Four",

Sea of Science - where they sing "
Only a Northern Song"

Sea of Monsters - where the dreaded "vacuum cleaner" beast sucks up the entire landscape and then itself

Sea of Nothing - where they meet a rather helpful "nowhere man" named
Jeremy Hilary Boob PhD, and sing the song "Nowhere Man" . Ringo takes pity on Jeremy and lets him aboard the submarine.

Foothills of the Headlands (or Sea of Heads) - where they get separated from the submarine and John sings "
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds",

Finally, the Sea of Holes - where Jeremy is kidnapped by one of the Blue Meanies patrolling the outskirts of Pepperland. When Ringo jumps on to a green hole (which turns into the Sea of Green and is actually a hidden portal), they arrive in Pepperland
