In an Animated Battle of the Bands, The Beatles and The Stones Clash Through Dozens of Albums

A legendary rivalry dukes it out one more time in Dog & Rabbit’s animation, “The Beatles Vs The Stones.” As iconic album covers from both rock groups come to life, the character from Voodoo Lounge rides a yellow submarine while Keith Richards, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, and Ringo Starr have a food fight.

What started out as funny adaptations to album art eventually became a labor of love as Andrew Kelleher explains. “I love music (good music is my favourite kind, to get specific), and animating this collection of iconic and sometimes odd album covers was a full-on joy. It was a bloody pleasure to make, from start to finish.” To create the film, Kelleher cut, re-assembled, and spliced together existing photographs alongside hand-drawn elements from fellow animators Sanjana Chandrasekhar and Hannah Brewerton.
