    Beatles Yellow Submarine Chief Blue Meanie with Beatles Production Cel Set-Up (United Artists/King Features, 1968). And what a set-up this is! A huge, 9" x 9" image of the Chief Blue Meanie dominates the scene, while on the second level, all four Beatles -- John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr -- plus Jeremy Boob are walking off in the distance. Wow! The cels are still in their original packaging from a 1970s marketing; however, the mat is partially torn away. The original gold seal Certificate of Authenticity has been attached to the reverse of the packaging board. The stapled-together cels appear a bit dirty, and a slight bit of paint separation is seen in the Meanie's right ear; still, this is an amazing five-character set-up. Overall Very Good condition.
