Beatles 'Yellow Submarine,' cartoon series animator Ron Campbell Visits Poughkeepsie Gallery

Tuesday June 12th and Wendesday June 13th  from 4pm - 8pm

When artist Ron Campbell was contacted in 1964 by King Features producer Al Brodax to direct an animated cartoon show about The Beatles, he said, “Insects make terrible characters for children’s cartoons.”

Campbell said Brodax laughed and explained to him the phenomena that was the British rock band.

“I was more impressed with films and cartoons rather than rock ‘n’ roll,” said the artist who is from Seymour, Australia and lives in Arizona. “I had barely heard of The Beatles, which was why I thought it was about insects.”

The rest is history.
