Update (2/11/02) From Bob Hieronimus:

Inside the Yellow Submarine: The Making of The Beatles Animated Classic Now more than ever we need this timeless classic to remind us that "our friends are all aboard". Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D. explains how Love is All You Need to conquer all the Blue Meanies in your life, and all the secrets behind this landmark film. After 30 years of research and interviews, Dr. Bob Hieronimus has written the only historical book about this influential "mod odyssey". Inside The Yellow Submarine has over 200 illustrations and is jammed with facts. Introduction written by Sir George Martin!

  • Why was the movie Yellow Submarine made without The Beatles in the first place?
  • How can such a peace and love movie have so much controversy surrounding it?
  • Is it true the artists practically "made it up as they went along"? Were they on drugs?
  • Who kidnapped the negatives of the unfinished film and held them for leverage?
  • Did John Lennon really design any "Blue Meanies"?
  • How you can identify all the "lonely people" in the Eleanor Rigby sequence.
  • And much, much more!

  • "The story of its creation, told here by Robert Hieronimus, is almost as dramatic and as fascinating as the story of the Beatles themselves." --Sir George Martin, Beatles Producer, in the Introduction

  • "This is probably a more important work than the film it documents." --Erich Segal, Ph.D., one of the Yellow Submarine Writers, in the Foreword

  • "I consider you THE Yellow Submarine expert." --Geoff Baker, Apple publicist and Beatles spokesperson

    A note from Bob Hieronimus:

    Time is drawing near to the official release date for "Inside The Yellow Submarine: The Making of The Beatles' Animated Classic," which, as you may know, I've been laboring to complete for close to thirty years. Krause Publications expects to finish the 432 page book (with over 200 illustrations!) and have it on the shelves by January 2002.

    Apple has very graciously granted us permission to use the original artwork by Designer Heinz Edelmann, which he created especially for the book's cover, and I'm attaching a copy of it here, as I know it will interest you.

    You can see more on Bob's website, including a pic of Edelmann's art work at This news item copyright Abbeyrd's Beatles Page
