Lost at sea for decades – this set collects the first two Technicolor seasons of Popeye’s animated theatrical shorts (1943-44 and 1944-45), complete, intact and politically incorrect. What else would you expect from a two-fisted, spinach-munching sailor man?
The 1940s brought new sights and sounds to America’s favorite cartoon star. Regulars Olive Oyl and Bluto return, while Popeye resumes his riotous relationship with his shipmate Shorty and his naughty nephews Pipeye, Poopeye, Peepeye and Pupeye. With the addition of full color, cartoonists were now free to let loose with journeys to exotic lands and give Popeye a fresh stock of new friends and foes.
But it’s the eternal love triangle, Popeye and Bluto competing for the attention of Olive, that drives the majority of these zany shorts. Whether our heroes are posing as circus acrobats or puppeteers or even taking turns at being Superman, these are true gems from the Golden Age of Animation.
The collection includes: Her Honor, The Mare; The Marry-Go-Round; We’re On Our Way To Rio; The Anvil Chorus Girl; Spinach Packin’ Popeye; Puppet Love; Pitchin’ Woo At The Zoo; Moving Aweigh; She-Sick Sailors; Pop-Pie A La Mode; Tops In The Big Top; Shape Ahoy; For Better Or Nurse; Mess Production.
