11.24.2018 - More Popeye coming to Blu-Ray and DVD!

Warner Bros. is finally releasing another Popeye set of animated shorts.  They have previously released all the Black & White Fleischer animated shorts from 1933-1943.  This new set of films from cartoon's Golden Age are from the first full color Famous Studios years.

Cartoon Research historian Jerry Beck, says this is a trial run and in order for us to get more Popeye on home video, this set MUST sell good to continue the series!  So everyone needs to purchase this release!


Lost at sea for decades - this set collects the first two Technicolor® seasons of Popeye's animated theatrical shorts (1943-44 and 1944-45), making them available for the first time ever on home video: complete, intact and outrageously funny. 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 situations - as well as the hilarious action-packed gags. Whether our heroes are posing as circus acrobats or puppeteers or even taking turns at being Superman, these gems from the Golden Age of Hollywood will blow you down with laughter.
