It has been some years since we had any Popeye animated, I believe the last attempt was in the late 80's with "Popeye and Son".

For the most part this cartoon [if you will] is a CGI which simply means instead of being hand drawn they used a computer to draw all the art, this process has finally reached a technology point where it can be done fairly well.

The creators goal for this was to use the original Popeye charcters created in the 30s BW animation and I do agree it is the closest to that so far.

The theme [title of quest for Pappy] isn't the most original storyline and to make things more confusing they added in some Holiday stuff as to make it fit into an Xmas Special [which it really isn't]. This was basically taking our familar story [looking for me pappy] and making it take place in Dec.

If Popeye fans complained about the violence [of lack of] in the 70's & 80's toons, it can only be worse by making Bluto now Popeye's best friend and ship mate. I am not joking - you heard me correct Bluto and Popeye are great friends, they never fight whatsoever in this one. Popeye eats his Spinach once near the end which features [the only] form of violence [if you can call it that] at the end of the feature. This is great for children of any age - not really great for Popeye fans.

I rate this feature 3 stars for the very good CGI and all of the voice casting [except the Sea Hag her voice fails to match her ugly face was a poor choice there].

5.0 out of 5 stars This CGI version of Popeye is well done! December 5, 2004
Format:DVD
If you are a fan of the original Max & Dave Fleischer Popeye cartoons from the 1930s, then you will certainly enjoy this DVD. There have been several incarnations of Popeye down through the years that were very poorly done, especially when compared to the Fleischer originals. This effort, however, holds up really well. The creators took the approach that they would try to capture the charm and essence of the original Fleischer cartoons, but take advantage of today's technology. They have succeeded admirably. The characters are true to their original concepts. Popeye is very heroic, but in his salty good-natured kind of way, always chuckling and muttering puns and double entendres under his breath. Bluto is a big brute, strong but dim-witted and spineless. Olive is well-intentioned but kind of inept. I love the way her arms get all rubbery when she is in panic mode. Wimpy is an eating machine. The CGI animation is very, very good. It is fun to see how familiar bits from the old cartoons look in CGI; such as when Popeye and Bluto are fighting intensely, and all you see is this rolling cloud of dust, with occasional stop-action moments showing the combatants in various fighting poses, which I found quite amusing to watch. Near the end, when Popeye eats his spinach (the climax of most any Popeye cartoon) and vanquishes the Sea Hag, I felt as if it all was taking me back to the cartoons I watched and loved as a kid. My only complaint: at 44 minutes, I wish this movie were twice as long. I hope Paul Reiser and friends decide to produce a sequel.

2.0 out of 5 stars An honest attempt but lacking in some parts June 10, 2005
Format:DVD
I am going to guess that this was supposed to be a TV holiday special but rather was thrown on to DVD since it probably wasn't worthy enough for airplay. During the viewing you can see certain parts of the story are setup to be commerical breaks.

It is an honest attempt to recapture the Fleischer style of doing Popeye the Sailor, but in some sense it just doesn't seem to have the same story telling, humor, or just feeling in it as the Originals even the Famous studio ones. The director also seems to have copied some of the scenes from the live action movie to be thier backdrops in this CGI. Overall the storylines seems pretty short and simple about the need to use Popeye by the Sea Hag to take over the world. The ending was left sort of open and as a possible set up for more. Like others have said it seems that Popeye and Bulto are friends, however in most of the earlier ones Popeye and Bulto were always friends except when they were competing for Olive's attention. All the other characters seem similar to thier personalities that we have seen through out the years.

The extras on this are pretty lacking as well. The are the interview with the actors, directors, and other staff about writing, drawing, and doing the voices. On top of that they have also added little CGI shorts from Popeye, Bulto, Olive about coming back into acting. There are also 6 Famous Stuido's Shorts from the mid 50's. The hardest part about watching those is the fact that a number of them seem to be direct transfeerings from aging film versions with out any attempt to clean them up. So at various times there are bright light spots from where the camera lense had started to burn the film. At other times the sound either drops off to a whisper or goes up to screaming loud. This is alright, but I would really look for it at your bargin bin at a local discount store. Rather then paying the USD$15-20 that they seem to ask for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great... but a few problems November 14, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
First, I am extremely happy that SOMEONE is interested in putting out new Popeye, since WB and King Features can't agree to put out the Fleischer Popeyes on DVD for Popeye's 75th Anniversary, this is the next best thing.

The animation is great, and is really, in some bizzare way, similar to the Fleischer cartoons' animation (if only Popeye's mouth didn't move when he muttered). The only character that looked wrong was Bluto, who has his eyes open, which is something that rarely happens in the Fleischers.

Popeye the Sailor himself is wonderfully animated and his voice is good (it's best when Popeye starts talking under his breath). The voice isn't perfect, but we'll have to take what we can get.

Olive Oyl's voice is all wrong. It's a good voice, but not for Olive. She acts and looks right, though.

Everything about Swee Pea is the same as the original, it's too bad Swee Pea is the character they could easily decide not to use, if they needed one less character.

Bluto's voice is wonderful, but Popeye and Bluto are friends. It's not as bad as it sounds, though. They don't really ACT like friends (Popeye says they are friends in it, but they argue through the entire show). Contrary to something another reviewer said, Popeye and Bluto DO fight a little, at the beginning (you don't see it because they're inside a ball of smoke). If Bluto had been a little less supportive of Popeye and Popeye had not said they were friends, it would have been OK.

Wimpy was great. Just like Wimpy.

Poopdeck Pappy was great also, his voice was much closer to the original than Popeye's.

The Sea Hag, the voice is very bland, but the sea hag remains kind of creepy.

Just a few mistakes, but doesn't EVERY movie have mistakes?
