What emerges is a vivid time capsule of the late '60s and a minor milestone in animation. The music represents the quartet's zenith--Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The story line, cobbled together by producer Al Brodax and a committee of writers, is a broad, feather-light allegory set in idyllic Pepperland, where the gentle citizens are threatened by the nasty, music-hating Blue Meanies and their surreal arsenal of henchmen, with the Beatles enlisted to thwart the bad guys. Visually, designer Heinz Edelmann mixes the biomorphic squiggles, day-glo palette, and Beardsley-esque portraits of Peter Max with rotoscoped still photographs and film; Edelmann's animated collages also nod to Andy Warhol and Magritte in properly psychedelic fashion, which works wonderfully with such terrific songs.
High orthodox Beatlemaniacs can still grouse that the animated Fab Four are (literally) flat archetypes, but that's missing the sheer bloom of the music or the giddy, campy fun of the visuals. Making sense of the story is second to submerging blissfully in the sights and sounds of this video treat. --Sam Sutherland

I agree. Does anyone know if there are even any new extra features planned for this edition? Regardless, instead of remastering and rereleasing Yellow Submarine for the nth time over, what should happen is for Apple to do a proper rerelease of Magical Mystery Tour, as it seems very difficult to...

|Not sure why the selling price is so high from the indy sellers.||
WHY was this taken out of print? "Help!" just came out on DVD (finally) last year, A Hard Day's Night remains in print, and still no sign of Let It Be. For crying out loud, you can get Magical Mystery Tour on DVD but not the masterpiece that is Yellow Submarine? What gives?

|How can I tell if it's a genuine DVD?||
I bought a DVD off of one of the sellers, and it was a rip-off. It was obviously a VHS burned to DVD, and even though it had the right packaging it was a bootleg. Be very aware that if you buy one from a seller, it will most likely be a bootleg copy.
