Here's a theory for you. What if Yellow Submarine was the series finale to The Beatles TV show. Let me explain:

You see, the episode Strawberry Fields Forever ends with The Beatles flying away in a car. What if that car was driving to their actual home (you never see their house in the series). The Chief Blue Meanie is actually the guy from the Nowhere Man episode who wants to get his revenge on the world because he wanted to be left alone but his house was torn down by The Beatles, therefore exposing him to the world. So, he tried to dig himself a new home, but in the process found an underground lair of Blue Meanies who worshiped him because they thought he was their god. So, he decided to take his minions up to earth to destroy it, but The Beatles stopped him with the power of guitars and rock music, which angered him to the point where he turned into a Blue Meanie himself and tried again, but this time he put radioactive waste into the air, therefore making everything look distorted and different and turned all the guitars, basses, keyboards, and drums into classical instruments like trumpets, trombones, violins, and tubas (hence why The Beatles aren't using rock instruments and also why they don't know where the hell they are). So The Lord Mayor told Old Fred (AKA George Martin) to get The Beatles back again, so he traveled in a yellow submarine, blah, blah, blah, they meet Jeremy Hill Boob (AKA Bartholomew from the episode I Call Your Name , hence why it's Ringo who gets his attention, as he was the one who really cared about him and without him, he went into total madness and because of that turned into a Blue Meanie because a Blue Meanie is essentially a person or animal with lots of madness and anger). Finally, The Beatles turn Chief Blue Meanie into a flower patch and the day is saved. Pretty soon the world will turn back to live action, then back into it's normal state and turn Chief Blue Meanie and Jeremy Hill Boob back into a human and a frog respectively.

In the show, the Beatles were very frightenend people yet in the movie, they take much more in stride. Why is that?

Easy, after they talked to the Maharishi (AKA Old Lord Mayor), he convinces them to not be afraid and has them go through a lot of meditation to put that as a mindset.

Is their any reason to think that they met Old Lord Mayor? The movie makes me think that they never heard of pepperland before.

S1. Because they know they are scared like a 4 year old at gunpoint but are the only ones to save it.

S2. Let me fix that, this is a work in progress so you know.

When you say Beatles TV show, I assume you mean the cartoon series? Which the Beatles didn't watch since they were in England whereas the cartoons were in the US? I fail to see how Yellow Submarine would be connected to it.

Both are made by the same company, some of the voice actors return. I think if it was something more like Universes merged or something and pepperland is one Universe that has merged 80,000 leagues below the sea and is slowly corrupting the main Earth.

I can name 5 things:

1. The Beatles had little interest in both products (the actual Beatles were in neither, except for the music and the end of Yellow Submarine )

2. The Beatles were aware of both products (though they refused to voice the characters)

3. Most of the American fans born from about 1958 to 1964 got into The Beatles from the TV show, whereas most of the fans born from about 1965 to 1967 got into The Beatles from the Yellow Submarine movie

4. The only reason most of the Americans I know went to see the movie was because of the TV show

5. There are very few songs that are in both the TV show and the movie (Eleanor Rigby and Nowhere Man ) and Love You To is only heard in a short excerpt, similar to the episode Got To Get You Into My Life

I was born in 1965 and I didn't "get into" the Beatles through the Yellow Submarine movie. Don't ask me "then what made you get into them?" because I can't answer that. The music was just already there, I knew it, and as I got older I grew to love and appreciate it more. I did love Yellow Sub (the movie) when I was a kid, but that wasn't the impetus of my fandom. The Beatles cartoon did nothing for me. I VAGUELY even remember it.

I said MOST, not all. I understand there are exceptions, I know people born as early as 1963 who didn't care for The Beatles until after their demise whereas I know people born as late as 1967 who were really loved The Beatles while they were still around. As for what got you into The Beatles, I understand exactly what you're saying, even though that is not the case for me. Also, I don't blame you for vaguely remembering the TV show, as you would've been 2 when the last original episode aired and 4 when it stopped airing on TV until around 87'. I can personally vaguely remember stuff that happened when I was 2, but I know that some people can't remember stuff that happened before they were about 5 or 6.

The TV show wasn't aired anywhere else, therefore it is a fallacy to say most people then learned about the Beatles through the TV show. I also think such a statement is a gross underestimation of the popularity of the Beatles' music, which was far more likely to attract people than a silly (and badly made) cartoon show. I mean, kudos to you for liking it, but please don't project your opinion on the rest of the world. Everyone doesn't think like you. heart

I feel the same. I think the music has become part of people's DNA or something. I think you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone (in the Western world anyway) who can't name and/or hum/sing at least one Beatles tune, even if they never consciously listened to the Beatles. I was never consciously subjected to their music until I was 12 and got introduced to their songs by the school's music teacher, who was a massive Beatles fan. And even then, it was only a handful of songs. I only truly got into the Beatles a few years ago, and that's when I discovered I already knew 90% of their music quite well, even though I had never sought it out. I certainly didn't see any films or cartoons about them before that. We All Stand Together was a very important song to me growing up, though, so there's that... No wonder Paul has always been my favourite Beatle.... a-hard-days-night-paul-5

Fixed it myself, I forgot that the TV show was only released in the US. Also, though I feel that both the TV show and Yellow Submarine have lots of poor animation, it is what attracted me, my older brother, and most of my friends (most of them were born in either 1962 or 1963, though there's a couple born in 1964 as well who feel the same) to The Beatles. It's the same case with how the Adam West Batman show got me into superheroes, even though it can be corny at times. Also, there are some good moments in it. For example, at the end of the Taxman episode, The Beatles wake up to realize it was all just a dream, at least until Ringo pulls an arrow out of his rear. Good points and thanks for reminding me that the UK only had the movie and not the TV show.

The UK, as well as the rest of the world brian-epstein There are far more countries than just the US and the UK a-hard-days-night-ringo-6In fact, I come from neither. But I get your point.

What turned me off the most about the cartoon, isn't the animation, but the voices. At least for Yellow Submarine , some sort of attempt was made to mimic the voices and accents. They didn't even try in the cartoon series. Plus, Paul is way too short in that paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

It is a Beatles related thing.

Hm. . . Wouldn't MMT be a better fit into Yellow Submarine than the Cartoon?

I don't think that matters in terms of combining two worlds. Both have magical elements, the wizards could of easily made pepperland. The liked messing with the people on the bus, they could of taken it to the next level.

Actually, we can combine all three of these. The wizards could be apprentices for Merlin from the series finale and Merlin could be Old Lord Mayor.
