Spinach--YUCK! But not to the most famous, fearless comic strip sailor in the world--Popeye. Whether romancing his longtime sweetheart, Olive Oyl, rescuing defenseless infant Swee'pea, or wrestling his nasty nemesis, Bluto, Popeye summons his spinach-induced strength to save the day. With one gulp of the vitamin-rich vegetable, Popeye transforms his scrawny body into a human dynamo! For high seas hijinks or landlocked levity, turn to the hilarious animated antics of that two-fisted tar--Popeye.]]>

Notice regarding Popeye the Sailor 1938-1940 Volume 2, Disc 1
Warner Home Video is advising consumers who purchased Popeye the Sailor 1938-1940 Volume 2 DVD that two shorts on Disc 1 have an alternate opening credits sequence.
For any consumer who wants to have disc 1 replaced with the original opening credits sequence, please contact Warner Home Video at 1-800-553-6937 so that a self-addressed stamped envelope can be sent to you for return of your current disc. Please note that the replacement discs will be sent to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.
The cartoons in error are:

They start with the Paramount Logo replacing the TV "aap" logo, but then jump to the plain white "Popeye" TV title card, and then return to the original episode title & credits. The editor did not realize that the Popeye section needed to be replaced also.
As this is not a disc "Recall" but a replacement program, don't expect the stores to send them back for replacement copies. I would suggest purchasing the DVDs now. If you are unhappy with the alternate title sections, then call for a replacement. I would not wait in hopes the new discs will appear on the store shelves. That would require them to sell out of all existing copies in the distribution warehouses.
Most likely many viewers will not care about this, but historians will want the corrected discs.

Extras will include commentaries, Popeye Popumentary featurettes, an Out of the Inkwell: The Fleischer Story retrospective documentary, the feature-length movie Gulliver's Travels, vintage audio recordings, radio interviews, and more.
As with Volume 1, Warner Bros. has provided a generous set of extras for this release. These include a lengthy documentary on the Fleischer studios, featurettes on supporting players, various art galleries, audio commentaries on several cartoons, and a Superman cartoon from the Fleischers. While that last item might seem an odd addition to this set, it's another fine example of what the studio could do with a popular comic character.
There are still a couple of more years' worth of great Popeye cartoons from the Fleischers, before the changeover to Famous Studios. . .and the long, slow death (creatively speaking) of the spinach-eating sailor. Popeye the Sailor-1941-43 Volume 3 hits the shelves on Sept. 30. In the meantime, enjoy some of his greatest adventures with this terrific collection.
With that said, I think the producers did a great job delivering us another high-quality "official" Popeye The Sailor release. There are some instances where the picture jumps during the opening credits or the sound quality swells, but overall the quality and integrity of these cartoons has been restored 99 percent. In other words, the producers of this set did the best they could to fix what were very damaged originals.
If you enjoyed Popeye The Sailor Vol. 1 you will enjoy Vol. 2 as well. You definitely see some changes in the Fleischers' direction, as they uprooted their studio and moved to Miami, in some cases placing Popeye in a suburban setting rather than the gritty city of the cartoons in the first volume. And it's interesting to see all of that off-screen drama manifest itself on-screen. But as the saying goes, you can take the kid out of the city but you can't take the city out of the kid; even though Popeye may find himself in calmer neighborhoods, he is still the same rough and tumble sailor, ready to crack a can of spinich and throw down with anyone.
What I think is so impressive about these sets is that they don't only rekindle your interest in Popeye--they pull you into the Fleischers' history and they boost your overall interest in animation. The extras and "Popumentaries" give you detailed looks at specific characters and voice-actors, and the packaging is really beautiful, perfectly capturing the era that these films represent.Read more ›

I love these cartoons. They are slow for newer generations. But anyone who enjoys classic tv or movies might enjoy them.Published 4 months ago by Gman

|single sided discs or the dreaded 2 sided flipper discs?||
Hi. The picture threw me, too. But they are one-sided discs. I bought the set, a picture of Popeye is on disc one and Olive Oyl is on disc two.
