Popeye the Sailor Volume 1 At last they are doing justice to the Popeye franchise by cleaning up some great animation created by Max Fleischer. Sure you can get the public domain versions of most of the cartoons on this boxed set, but the quality will never come that close to what Warner is offering.
The most popular sailor in animation history is certainly “strong to the finish.” Nearly 75 years after his Silver Screen debut, he’ll bring to DVD for the first time the cartoons that first made him famous when Warner Home Video (WHV), Hearst Entertainment and King Features Syndicate release Popeye the Sailor Volume 1. These classic Popeye animated shorts made Popeye, Olive Oyl and Bluto national pop icons and have been demanded by fans for generations. Available on July 31, 2007, the 4-disc Authorized Edition DVD collection includes 60 original remastered and unedited theatrical shorts created by the legendary Max Fleischer.
