The Beatles embark on a magical and musical journey to save Pepperland from the Blue Meanies in YELLOW SUBMARINE.
The music-loving inhabitants of Pepperland are under siege by the Blue Meanies, a nasty group of music-hating creatures. The Lord Mayor of Pepperland (Dick Emery) dispatches sailor Old Fred (Lance Percival) to Liverpool, England, where he is to recruit the help of the Beatles (Voiced by Paul Angelis, John Clive, Geoffrey Hughes, Peter Batten).
