A set of childish doodles by John Lennon reminiscent of fantasy characters from Yellow Submarine are set to sell for a whopping £30,000. <br />
<br />
Lennon scribbled the peculiar looking faces in 1965 while Britain was in the midst of Beatlemania - three years before the surreal animation was released. <br />
<br />
The bizarre humanoids are similar to the army of Blue Meanies and Beatles befriender Jeremy Hillary Boob from Yellow Submarine.<br />

He later sent them to his longtime penfriend and fellow sci-fiction fan Les Hanmer. His family are now selling them at SAS auctions of Newbury, Berks.
