Ron Campbell, director of the 1960s Saturday morning Beatles cartoon TV series and animator of the Beatles film “Yellow Submarine,” announced Feb. 26 by email he will be appearing live during the upcoming SXSW.

Campbell will be at Wild About Music, 115 E. 6th Street, Austin, Texas, from 1 to 9 p.m. March 8th through March 15th, except on March 10, when he will appear from 1 to 6 p.m. He will showcase his original Beatles cartoon paintings created specially for the show and create new Beatles pop art paintings live at the exhibit.

Since retiring after a 50-year career, he has been painting subjects always based on the animated cartoons he has helped bring to the screen. With particular emphasis on the Beatles, he shows his Cartoon Pop Art in galleries worldwide.

In his book, “Up Periscope: Yellow Submarine,” producer Al Brodax gives Ron Campbell a great deal of credit for saving the movie “Yellow Submarine” and tying it all together at the last minute.

Campbell was also involved with many of the most beloved cartoons including “Scooby-Doo,” “Winnie The Pooh,” “Krazy Kat,” “George of the Jungle,” “The Jetsons, “The Flintstones,” “The Smurfs,” “Goof Troop,” “Rugrats,” and dozens more. Campbell ’s former studio was awarded a Peabody and an Emmy for his work in children’s television.
