Overview

Everyone's favorite sailorman hasn't aged a day since his silver-screen debut over 75 years ago, showing the true power of eating your spinach! Popeye, infamous for his "muskles," spinach, and pipe, became one of the most beloved characters in animation history soon after he was introduced to American audiences. His distinctive jargon and memorable catchphrases, such as "Thas' all I can stands, 'cause I can't stands no more," also contributed to making him a household name. A humble hero, Popeye was always true to his uncompromising moral standards. Although he looked like a tough guy, he only resorted to force when faced with a conflict that affected his loved ones; whenever the evil Bluto appeared to be on the verge of defeating him, a quick ingestion of spinach always gave Popeye the strength to win the battle. He was also a hopeless romantic, faking illness to get Olive Oyl's attention, as seen in the short "I Yam Love Sick." Popeye the Sailor 1938-1940 Volume 2 comes with more than three hours of cartoons -- there are 31 black-and-white theatrical shorts lasting 7 to 10 minutes each and one two-reel 20-minute color cartoon, all in one collectible package. Included on the two-disc DVD are two of the most memorable Popeye shorts, the remastered "I Yam Love Sick!" and "With Poopdeck Pappy." Popeye Volume 2 also includes more than three hours of incredible bonus features.

This is Volume Two of the original Popeye theatrical cartoons and shorts created by Max and Dave Fleischer in the '30s and '40s. They're old cartoons with old ways of thinking, but some of the messages are surprisingly modern (don't smoke) (don't spank your baby--he might run away and you'll feel very guilty). The cartoons include the first big-screen appearances of Poopdeck Pappy and Eugene the Jeep. Also the Goons (though not Alice). The special features are very interesting too. They include a comparison (Men of Spinahc and Steel) between Popeye and the original version of Superman. Which was the first superhero? Watch and find out. There's also one of the original Fleischer Superman cartoons (Mechanical Monsters). Enjoy that, then go out and get the whole set of the Fleischer Superman cartoons. Also get Popeye Volume One and Three. You might also try Betty Boop.
