Archive for December 2016

As John Lennon would have said, Merry Krimble. It’s December 2016, and the See Hear podcast celebrates its third anniversary with a fireside chat about an iconic piece of animation.

Tim, Bernie and Maurice are joined by host of the Macca-dedicated podcast Paul Or Nothing, Sam Whiles (who was also the co-host of the Down In The Hole podcast dedicated to Tom Waits). They chat about the 1968 full length animated feature, Yellow Submarine, a nautical fantasy about some obscure pop group called The Beatles (YAY) travelling in the titular transport to rid an idyllic land of music-hating villains (BOO). The film was not only successful in its day, but went on to influence a bunch of other storytellers and animators (we’re sure Terry Gilliam was one).

It was an engaging conversation, not least of which because there was not a common consensus on the merits of the film. Who said what? Tune in and find out before the Blue Meanies put the Apple Bonkers onto you.

Many thanks to Sam for taking the time to join us and even put on a Paul McCartney impersonation for the crew’s amusement at one point.

We’d like to thank anyone who listened to us over the year. We will continue to present shows to you through 2017…you have been warned.

Also, please consider giving a listen to the companion episode to this one. Maurice interviews Mitch Axelrod (Fab 4 Free 4 All podcast) about the King Features cartoon series dedicated to the fab four.

Hey there See Hear listeners,

 

We have two episodes of the show being released this week. Episode 36 will concentrate on a discussion of the full length 1968 Beatles animated feature, Yellow Submarine.

 

Today, however, to complement that episode, we present to you an interview Maurice had with author of the book “Beatletoons”, Mitch Axelrod. There are hundreds of Beatles related books covering music analysis, biographies, their professional day to day diary, tours, gossip and even description of what equipment they used (specific amplifiers, guitars, drumkits, etc). Mitch has written the only book about the creation and background behind the very successful weekly King Features cartoon TV show devoted to the Beatles.

 

Mitch was very happy to talk about how the cartoons came about, how the animated figures actually moved like their real-life counterparts, (but their voices sounded nothing like the real thing), why the cartoons are never likely to be officially released by Apple on DVD, and sixties cartoons in general. He’s a knowledgeable and funny guest, and it was See Hear’s huge honour to have him on the show.

 

Don’t forget to look for Episode 36 in a few days.
