      It was one of four songs the Beatles specifically wrote for the Yellow Submarine cartoon. The scene in the cartoon that features the song was cut in the US release because it was considered to be too long (later restored in 1999). The song was apparently originally called “Hey, Bullfrog”, but when Paul McCartney  barked (Rrrrr-uff!) during the studio session, and John Lennon took that ball and ran with it, its name was changed to “Hey, Bulldog”.

      “There’s a new spirit abroad in the land. The old days of ‘grab and greed’ are on their way out. We’re beginning to think of what we owe the other fellow, not just what we’re compelled to give him. The time’s coming… when we shan’t be able to fill our bellies in comfort while others go hungry, sleep in warm beds while others shiver in the cold.... And God willing, we’ll live to see that day…” Basil Rathbone,"Sherlock Holmes Faces Death" (Universal 1943)
