A legendary animator who directed the Beatles TV cartoon series and worked on the Beatles film Yellow Submarine will be making a rare appearance in the Hudson Valley.

Ron Campbell, director of the legendary Saturday morning Beatles Cartoon series that aired on ABC from September 25, 1965 through April 20, 1969 and animator on the Beatles film Yellow Submarine, will be at the 358 Gallery at 358 Main Street in Poughkeepsie on Tuesday, June 12 and Wednesday, June 13.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the release of Yellow Submarine, Campbell will showcase his original Beatles cartoon paintings created for the show and create new Beatles pop art paintings at the exhibit. Campbell will also speak with the public about his time with the Beatles.

He’ll also feature other artwork based on his 50-year career in cartoons including Scooby Doo, Rugrats, Smurfs, Flintstones, Jetsons and more.

The exhibit is free and all works are available for purchase.

Yellow Submarine will be re-released in select theaters in July. Producer Al Brodax credits Campbell with saving the movie and tying it all together at the last minute.
