Yellow Submarine (1968) - Rotten Tomatoes.
As everybody knows the Blue Meanies only take no for an answer. That's why they get so mad when the songs of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band percolate through Pepperland. Such songs encourage strange plants to bloom. There's a big YES sprouting near the bandstand, and love is growing all over the place. So the Blue Meanies counterattack with anti-music missiles, turning everyone in.
Directed by George Dunning. With Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, John Lennon. The Beatles agree to accompany Captain Fred in his yellow submarine and go to Pepperland to free it from the music-hating Blue Meanies.
Oh yeah, my comment was that Yellow Submarine was actually The Beatles’ fourth film. Magical Mystery Tour being the third was aired ’round Christmas time ’67 meanwhile “The Sub” didn’t see the light of day til november ’68; Nearly a year after! just thought I’d let you know.
I have Yellow Submarine action figures (from 1999 I think) amongst other memorabilia and my 3.5 daughter was keen to watch it. She loves it! Ringo is her favourite and she loves the songs, sings them often. So, as much as us adults take it as a psychedelic trip and something very much iconic of its age, it’s still excellent for young kids.

Her description is mostly positive, but disturbing elements such as the “rings and things” in the bedroom walls, and the bars on the windows, keep showing up. She is particularly disturbed by the yellow wallpaper in the bedroom, with its strange, formless pattern, and describes it as “revolting.”.
