The original cartoons for The Beatles' psychadelic animated film Yellow Submarine are up for sale.

The 80 drawings are expected to fetch £125,000 when they go up for sale at Heritage Auctions in Los Angeles on November 20.

The scenes are hand-painted on sheets of celluloid and were originally owned by a collector who worked on the 1968 film, in which the band travel to Pepperland to save it from the Blue Meanies, The Times reports.

Earlier this week, a preview of the second volume of The Beatles 'Live At The BBC' collection began streaming online – listen to it below.
