Our screens have been inundated with strange and funny animated features over the years, but Josh Weinstein a former writer for The Simpsons and producer on Futurama believes the success of the medium is indebted to 1968's Yellow Submarine. Weinstein argues in The Guardian that the visceral and trippy nature of the movie has deeply influenced modern-day animation not just through its comedy, but also through the design and artistic techniques used. Yellow Submarine may have been created on a tight budget, but the time and money constraints ultimately helped shape a movie that influenced the next generation of animators.
