Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Show of hands: how many people secretly wish they lived in that mansion? (Raises hand.)
Cowboy Bebop at His Computer: It's quite amazing how many people think that the Beatles are living in London during the film's early stages — even though Ringo's first line is about how Liverpool can sometimes be a lonely place.
Cult Classic: The story is very simple and the film didn't do good at first, but it is filled with very surreal imagery which attracts people to it.
Harsher in Hindsight: The clock in the Yellow Submarine speeds up to the year 2009, which only half of the band (Paul and Ringo) would live to see.
Heartwarming Moment: When Old Fred reunites with the Lord Mayor with a hug when the Beatles free him with a song.
Periphery Demographic: The movie was intended for a teenaged/adult audience, but has seen glorious success as a trippy way to introduce kids to The Beatles' music.
John claimed in one of his last interviews that while raising Sean, he and Yoko deliberately tried to keep John's Beatles history away from him, and played down being a millionaire pop star. It was only when Sean saw Yellow Submarine for the first time while at a sleepover at a friend's house that Sean recognized his dad in the film, and thus his role in the Beatles.
What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: In his book Up Periscope Yellow, Al Brodax, the man behind the production, who wrote or co-wrote most of the non-musical sequences, swears the only time he ever had drugs was in a meeting with John Lennon after he'd finished the script.
In the behind-the-scenes portions of the DVD, it's revealed that while the animators never did drugs, they would often return to work a little drunk after having a few too many pints during their lunch break.
