Great news for all classic cartoon fans Popeye the Sailor has now come out on DVD and this is not one of those “Best of” compilations. Its all 60 original Fleischer Studios Popeye cartoons in beautiful remastered black & white. Volume 1, 1933-1938, is a 4-disc collector’s edition. that also includes the first two Three-Color-Technicolor two-reel specials: “Popeye the Sailor Meets Sinbad the Sailor”, and “Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves”.
Not enough? Well how about 5 hours worth of bonus materials are included: Audio commentaries from Mark Kausler, Jerry Beck, Mark Evanier, and others. More features include restrospectives on Popeye and Max Fleischer, behind the toons featurettes, and bonus shorts. Absolutely amazing!
