* BoringReturnJourney: Inverted. Young Fred's journey from Pepperland to England is summed up in the opening credits. The return journey is more hazardous and takes up the majority of the film's runtime. That said, the ''return-return'' journey, meaning the Beatles's travel back to Liverpool from Pepperland, is completely skipped over.

When [[SugarApocalypse Blue Meanies attack]] the strange and magical undersea utopia of "Pepperland", Old Fred is sent off in a near-omnipotent submarine to find help. He ends up in Liverpool, where he convinces Music/RingoStarr and his three "mates" to return with him. Along the way, stuff happens. [[DisneyAcidSequence Very weird stuff.]] With Beatles music all throughout and art in the style of Heinz Edelmann, the return voyage to Pepperland is... quite a '[[{{Pun}} trip]]'. Can the Beatles save Pepperland and its citizens with ThePowerOfRock? Or will the Blue Meanies end the free and open dissemination of music, which they [[GoodHurtsEvil find horrifically painful]], once and for all?

* AdaptationExpansion: The original song only describes a trip "beneath the waves, til we found a Sea of Green," and while that's still a goal of the movie (as the Sea of Green leads to Pepperland), there are many more seas the Beatles find themselves in before reaching the Sea of Green. The actual Sea of Green sequence only takes about ten seconds!

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: During the live-action sequence at the end, John Lennon looks through a spyglass pointed outward toward the audience and announces, "Newer and bluer Meanies have been sighted within the vicinity of this theatre." (Fortunately, there's a way to defeat them: by SINGING!)

* FollowTheLeader: This film was arguably a strong influence on 1974's ''SpaceBattleshipYamato,'' and thus indirectly on ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Classic}}'', and pretty much all of modern SpaceOpera.
