The thing that I recall about the spaghetti scene was that George Cook, believe it or not, (who was the caterer) creating huge vats of spaghetti. I mean, literally cannibal-sized to boil people in pots, and guys carrying them onto the set and taking a pitchfork and literally moving it from one place to another, and the evolution of the actual action just seemed to come out of that.” Gavrik Losey

“But Magical Mystery Tour was not an avant-garde film. It was a visual equivalent of Sgt. Pepper:

…it broke all kinds of rules, it used some avant-garde ideas, but it made sure that there was something for everyone.”
