As a supplement to our eleventh episode, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones talk to Felicity Kuzinitz about the Beatles' career in animated cartoons during the 1960s: the first as the subject of a Saturday morning cartoon on ABC from 1965-1969; the second in the big-budget 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine. Graeme, Rob and Felicity discuss the TV version's bizarre choice of songs from the Beatles' catalogue and terrible (though familiar) voice work. They generally marvel at the achievements of Yellow Submarine in terms of its contribution to pop art and its portrayal of the fab four, even if they don't entirely get the plot! The three also discuss the original songs by the Beatles that make it into the movie.
