We start this section by showing you a page from the 1968 Yellow Submarine
Press Book manufactured by United Artists. This page lists the many
companies and the official Yellow Submarine products they were licensed to
manufacture back in 1968! Some of these 'licensed items' are well known
amongst collectors, however many of the licensed items have never been
found by any collectors and quite possibly, they were never manufactured
even though an official license for the product existed! Too bad as we're
sure every Yellow Submarine collector would have loved to own a set of 1968
Yellow Submarine Topps bubble gum cards or a 1968 inflatable swim toy or stuffed
dolls by the Ideal Toy Corporation!
Alarm Clock. Mfg in 1968 by the
Sheffield watch company of West Germany. Fully licensed item and very rare
especially when found with the original box. Sheffield only mfg 2 Yellow
Submarine items: this wind-up alarm clock and a very colorful wristwatch; both are prized possessions.
No, you're not seeing double, presented are two Yellow Submarine
Alarm Clocks sitting on the same table!! This alarm clock has been
reproduced but the repro is nothing like the original, in terms of size and pattern.
Has been found with orange bells on the top instead of the yellow ones.
Ones with plain brass bells are definitely fake. The original dial has
painted on florescent dial markers which glow in the dark. The box has
been reproduced but the original is made of fairly stiff cardboard and the
repros are laser printed so they are easily detected.
A set of 4 Yellow Submarine Coin Banks
were manufactured by Pride Creations circa 1968 USA. These 8" tall brightly hand-painted
composition banks have a slot in the back of each head to put coins into. On
the bottom there is a rubber plug and 2 original stickers. A triangular
Pride Co sticker and a KFS sticker. One of each Beatle was available at
This set has been reproduced but you can easily tell the originals by looking at
the bottom. Originals have inset bottoms, not completely flat.
Originals also were issued with 2 stickers on the bottom; these were sometimes
torn off or fell off. Some
originals say the word PRIDE inset, made into the piece itself. Original
boxes were green and had a sticker on one end identifying which Beatle was in
the box with an ID number; these are quite rare. Pride Creations
also made a set of Yellow Submarine key chains.
A large cloth-type hard cover 3-ring
Binder mfg by
Vernon Rule, USA in 1968 and licensed by King Features Subafilms Ltd. This
item was originally sold as a set which included this 3 ring binder, a 8x10"
side spiral wire bound notebook with cardboard cover and a smaller 5" x 7" side
spiral bound notebook with cardboard cover. Very hard to find the complete
set still sealed in original shrinkwrap. Click here
to see the 3 piece set.

Submarine. Also shown is the rare cardboard store display for the hardback
The official Yellow Submarine Song Book, mfg
in the USA in 1968. Features all the songs from the movie. Has many
color pages from features of the movie. Originally was issued with a
folded pull-out poster in the center that featured The Yellow Submarine in the

attached to the song book.

paperbacks, the USA and UK 1st printings and the USA hardcover 1st edition.
Yellow Submarine Book Covers were mfg in
the USA in 1968. To date no book covers have been verified to exist, only

photograph submitted to us!!! A
set of 4 Yellow Submarine Posters
was made with these same designs!
Bookmark set mfg in the USA in 1968
under official license to Unicorn Creations USA. Unicorn also made a set
of bulletin boards,
postcards and stationery sets in boxes.
Bubble Gum Cards
were made in England by
Anglo Confectionary Company. There were 66 cards to the set along with
colorful wrappers and a very nice display box. The reverse of the cards
could be put together to make a large picture; this picture was also
available as a poster that could be purchased by mail order.
A very large 24" x 30" tall cardboard
Board still sealed in the original plastic wrap with original cardboard header
card. This is an officially licensed item made in 1968 by Unicorn
Creations USA under license from King Features
Ltd. In 1968 Unicorn Creations also made the boxes of
Yellow Submarine Stationery; along with
bookmarks and 2 different sizes of
postcards. Each includes the original pins(see the pins
bag attached to upper right side of the Yellow Sub bulletin board). Item is ink stamped "© KFS - SUBA"
in lower right corner. There were originally 6 different designs, one of
each Beatle, the Group, and The Yellow Submarine. The bulletin boards were made
of corrugated cardboard and thus were easily prone to bending, so they are quite
hard to find today in excellent condition and still sealed.
Another, set of Bulletin Boards
were mfg in the USA in 1968. Collectors usually only purchase these still
sealed with the original round sticker in place on the front outside of the
shrink wrap. Four
different designs were made. These were black light enabled bulletin
boards that were made of foam core.
3.5" Pinback Button Set which consisted
of 4 buttons depicting each Yellow Submarine Beatle. Beware of
counterfeit buttons: originals have very crisp black printing on the
curl of each button. Most if not all should have brass pins on the backside, not
silver colored pins; The quickest way to spot an original button:
the reproductions have printed the name of the town incorrect on the side of the
button: originals say "Slough England" while repros or counterfeits
say "Siough England" on the curl of the buttons. The "L" is printed
as an "I" on the reproductions!
An original 5
Piece Pin-back Button Set mfg by A&M
Leatherlines Inc, NYC, USA in 1968. Each pin-back button features a
different scene and is marked A&M LEATHERLINES, INC., NEW YORK 10012 along the
bottom edge. The top edge of each button is marked ©KING FEATURES -
SUBAFILMS LTD., 1968. See images of edges below. This is a very hard to find set.
These buttons were made by the same company that produced the ultra rare Yellow
Submarine Desk Set which included items such 2 different size
Photo Albums, The Sgt Pepper Scrapbook, The Pen Holder, Pencil Cup, Memo Pad and
Diary. There was only 1 original USA licensed manufacturer of Yellow Submarine pinback buttons in the 1960's. Last
shown is the Yellow Submarine Button Store Display Box
believed to have held the A&M Leatherlines button set.

Animation Cels made for the full
length motion picture The Yellow Submarine. Much of the original
hand painted art cels for the movie still remains. They was originally marketed by
companies like Hallmark in late 1968 through 1970 through their retail outlets
charging $20 for 2 or 3 original production art cels including a Certificate of
Authenticity for each set. Original
drawings used to make the art cels also survived. Art animation drawings
were drawn using pencil on animation sheets measuring approximately 12" x 16".
The art cels were created using these drawings. Drawings usually sell at
lower prices than do hand painted art cels because their were no colors used,
only the outlined character was drawn. Many examples of art
animation cels are
shown below along with 3 of the nearly-extinct original watercolor backgrounds.
An extensive look at the making of the movie The Yellow Submarine is now
available in a great new book by Dr. Robert R. Hieronimus called Inside The
Yellow Submarine - The Making of The Beatles Animated Classic,
available at bookstores now! Dr. Hieronimus took over 20 years to assemble
this masterpiece! It is a highly recommended work for those wishing to
gain a more in-depth look at the making of this remarkable motion picture.
Cereal Boxes mfg in the USA in
1968. Rice Honeys and Wheat Honeys by Nabisco. Both boxes have been
counterfeited. Inside each box of cereal originally came one sheet of KFS

The ultra rare Beatles Goebel figurines
mfg in West Germany in 1968. One of each Beatle was made. Approx.
8.5" high. Made of porcelain. These were available in the USA in
1968/9. For some unknown reason, most of the sets sold in the USA came
from the Southwest region of the country. Very difficult to find a complete set!
The left foot of each Beatle carries the blue ink Goebel markings from the late
1960's; the right foot is marked with a production lot number which is
impressed into each foot; an example of a valid lot number is BULL308.
Each was hand painted by Goebel. Exact production numbers are not known,
even by the Goebel Corporation! We inquired!!! Estimates are less than 100 sets were ever
made in 1968. What is known is that this project was originally developed by the
Son of the owner of Goebel. Goebel then presented one set to each Beatle
as a gift! Even Mal Evans and Neil Aspinall each received a set too!
Please note that in 1999 this set was reissued from the original 1968 molds.
The bottoms of each foot on the reissues are dated 1999 and have the official
yellow submarine logo. The reissue set was a limited edition of 1,968 sets

Wristwatch. Mfg in 1968 by the
Sheffield watch company of West Germany. A fully licensed item by King
Features Subafilms Ltd. and very rare
especially when found with both the original vinyl band and original Sheffield hangtag.
The face of the watch is a painted litho on a metal dial. Beware of
counterfeits - originals have a painted dial with black hands and NO
second hand. Originals have a gold colored case with a chrome back that
states "DIAMOND TOOLED Base Metal, Electronically Timed, Anti Magnetic,
Swiss Made". This watch was not sold with a Yellow Submarine specific box;
it either came in a generic Sheffield box or with a generic Sheffield hangtag as
most of these were originally displayed hanging on an in-store watch rack.
See picture below of the original box. Just finding the watch without the band is quite a feat in itself!!! Very
desirable if watch is in good working condition and keeps time. Sheffield only
manufactured 2 Yellow Submarine items in the Sixties: this colorful wrist watch
and a wind-up alarm clock; both are prized
