    When Jason tried comparing this movie to Harry Potter, Paul questioned who Voldemort would be in this film. I think the answer is pretty obvious:

    This movie was at least on the short side which made it relatively painless to watch. I didn't find it funny but there've been plenty of other movies for this podcast that were more of a chore to get through. I've been hung up on one particular detail in the film, which I noticed during the film's master of disguise training montage. Pistachio is seen reading "The Master of Disguise for Dummies." Of course, the For Dummies series is very well-known and widely available, which raises the question of why such a book would exist if being a master of disguise is supposedly a hereditary secret. Presumably, the intention of such a book would be to allow anyone who read it to be able to become a master of disguise, regardless of lineage, and it would mean that the Disguiseys' talent really isn't that special or unique to them, which would undermine the film's premise. In this universe, this book shouldn't exist, and the only justification consistent with the film's plot for such a book existing would be that someone in the Disguisey family made their own "for dummies" book and infringed upon that trademark (oh dear.)

    Thanks to your comment I just spent the last 15-20 minutes comparing the songs from both stereo Sgt Pepper and Yellow Sub albums, the Songtrack, and a bit of the mono Sgt Pepper's on youtube lol. I feel like the mono is the most striking version. The stereo Sgt Pepper's, and even the Yellow Sub soundtrack just feel like they have some odd balance choices. While the Yellow Submarine Songtrack IS still stereo, I feel like they fixed a lot of the balance issues so it's closer to the mono version. Not quite there, but it has a much better sound than the other stereo releases. Bless whoever remastered the Songtrack. I'm not sure if that remaster is what's used on the blu-ray. Our TV sound system isn't really good enough for me to tell anyway. Also side note, was disappointed in the captions on the blu-ray. A few errors, plus anytime something like "I think I burnt me finger." came up they wrote "me" as "my", and no attempt to caption Old Fred's frantic yelling until he got to the "blue meanies!" part, even though you clearly hear "submarine" and "explosions" before that EACH TIME.

    Movies were mono at this time (maybe the are exceptions?)). I would summe virtually any streaming or DVD version would be mixed to stereo or 5.1. Maybe mono is an option but I doubt it's the default. So, we probably aren't hearing it as intended for theatres. The Yellow Submarine album was released only in stereo. There was a Yellow Submarine songtrack (not soundtrack) released around 2001 that was remastered and remixed that a lot of people liked. I, being a purist and snob, never listened to it. I would assume modern mixes of the movie utilize this? For Sgt. Pepper (and all the early Beatle albums and even a lot of albums at the time) were definitely mixed differently for mono and stereo. Sgt. Pepper and the white album definitely have notable differences for many songs. Some are even at very different speeds. Some have different sound effects entirely. The main reason for the differences are that more people had mono systems at home in 1967 and more care was put into mono mixing (at least for The Beatles). I don't know why they didn't mix in stereo and simply fold it into a single channel but I assume they had a reason. The mono version of Sgt. Pepper was released in 1967 but stopped being available as stereo became the standard. I don't think it was officially released again until the Beatles remasters in 2010 (or so, I don't remember the exact year).

    I found Data’s treatment after kidnapping Mama Disguisey to be rather bizarre. He somehow drugs/brainwashes her into thinking she’s still cooking at home. If he has such ability, why doesn’t he use that to help him steal the Constitution and other ‘stuff’. And then he periodically threatens her by having a pair of arms rising out of a pile of flour?!? Are they real arms? If so is the person in the flour also a Master of Disguise?

    Okay, the Disguiseys are supposed to be Italian. Pistachio was probably born and raised in the US. But one of them impersonated Abe Lincoln. This means that they'd been in the United States for at least four generations before Grandfather (Harold Gould). What gives? Are there American and Italian branches of the family? Did they come to the US in the early 19th century, then return to Italy late in the century? Incidentally, Harold Gould is only 17 years older than James Brolin, and Brolin only 15 years older than Carvey. Those Disguiseys breed young. But Pistachio is going to be the outlier, at least 47 when he has a kid with Jennifer.

    I remember renting the vhs from the local video store as a kid. I think I liked it because I was a child and it was a movie. But was also deeply disappointed in what I was given? I know that I was mostly upset by the lack of Turtle work. I felt like the trailer promised me more of that nonsense than I got. I think that this was the first time I was let down by a movie and realized movies could be bad

    Comedian Jamie Loftus tells a story about a friend of hers that worked on the set of Master of Disguise. Apparently, parts of the turtle scene were filmed on September 11, 2001. Despite the fact that America had just suffered the worst terrorist attack in its history the director didn’t let anyone go home and the entire cast and crew had to work a full day. Imagine trying to process a national tragedy of that magnitude while holding a boom mic over Dana Carvey in a turtle suit. That director should be brought up on war crimes.

    For some reason I want to stress how terrifying the blue meanies are to a child. I still look at them and kinda shiver. They are not chill.

    I tried to rent this and couldn’t find it. It was a movie I saw in early childhood and have revisited throughout the years. It’s definitely an animated LSD trip (although since I’ve never taken LSD, I’m making an assumption and you know the old saying: when you assume, it makes you into an asshole. Or something like that).

    To comment on the other Beatles movies . . . Ringo tended to get a lot of focus because he was the best actor. He's the only member who had any kind of career as an actor after the Beatles. But it is kind of incredible that a band formed entirely on their own and just to play music (like, not a boy band where some producer is picking "types") wound up with four guys who were all also charming personalities who could hold up on screen. AND the music was also consistently great. We'll probably never see anything like that again.

    I saw this movie once, on a big screen in a beautiful old theater. I think that's the right way to see it: surrounded by the colors and music and such, not distracted by anything else. It's very enjoyable that way. I'm sure on the small screen it loses something.

    Or....this is a meta commentary on the inscrutability of this movie. The book is intended for viewers of Master of Disguise, the film we are watching. This movie happened to us, we are the "dummies". Half the book deals with the Magic vs. Acting? debate, and there is an entire chapter devoted to Bo Derek entitled "James Brolin's Vagina".

    If Paul & Amy ever put out their live Beatles ep of Unspooled, you guys will be shocked how they refer to Give My Regards To Broad Street. (They didn't enjoy it.) haha

    I found an article about the Sgt. Pepper's album that said people weren't hearing it as intended until a recent anniversary box set. Since it had been recorded in mono special tricks were used to enhance the sound. All the stereo mixes most people heard lost a lot of the special audio. I'm wondering if the movie is a similar way. We might not be hearing the movie the way it was mixed for at the time?
