In 1964, The Beatles made their first tour of the United States. Listen close and you might still hear an echo of all the screaming that greeted them in those halcyon days. To commemorate this now decidedly middle-aged anniversary, Mickey’s Autograph Arena is hosting Ron Campbell, the award winning animator and artist who worked on The Beatles’ Saturday morning cartoon series in 1965 as well as their feature film, Yellow Submarine. Campbell is one of just two people to win both a Peabody Award and an Emmy — the other is the legendary Chuck Jones. Campbell will be appearing in connection with an exhibition called The Art of the Beatles. The exhibition will include over 100 rare pieces of artwork and photography featuring The Beatles. What’s more, he will be painting a 150 color collogue of The Beatles as they appeared in Yellow Submarine. You can meet Campbell at Mickey’s on Friday, Oct. 8 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. and on Saturday between 10 and 5. Mickey’s Autograph Arena is located at 4825 E. 96th St. Admission is free but RSVP is appreciated. Call 818-7706 to RSVP for Campbell’s appearance.
