One of the few good things about these shorts is that they feature Jack Mercer's final performances as the voice of Popeye. And they are at least as good as much of what Paramount did with the character in the 50's and 60's. But for the definitive animated Popeye shorts, be sure to check out Popeye the Sailor: 1933-1938, Vol. 1 and Popeye the Sailor: 1938-1940, Vol. 2.
After a few years Popeye still has his strong stature and even stronger sensitivity as he looks out for the little guy and defends his honor with his wits and good can of spinach to boot. You'll still see Olive Oyl, Bluto, Wimpy, Swee' Pea, and even his four nephews as they take on some brand-new adventures on this official authorized DVD.
Eight full-color episodes on this DVD include:
"Abject Flying Object" - A little alien creature is welcomed by Popeye and Olive, but Bluto attempts to capture the creature for his own doings.
"Ship Ahoy" - Popeye teaches his nephews Peepeye, Pipeye, Poopeye and Pupeye how to properly sail a boat, but his lessons get hindered by Bluto (as usual).
"Popeye Goes Sightseeing" - While visiting New York City, Swee' Pea crawls off into trouble and Popeye chases him all over the place !
"Popeye the Plumber" - This cartoon seems similar to the Fleischer classic "Plumbing is a 'Pipe'" where Popeye attempts to fix Olive's constantly leaking pipes.
Although there are just the 8 cartoons on this DVD, these episodes are very mega-multilingual; there's even Japanese captions !
So this classic character takes a new-age spin on this DVD that you don't want to miss out on. And if you want some vintage Popeye, look for the classic cartoon collections also available. Plus look for "Popeye and Friends: Volume 2" available this fall !

I remember this version of Popeye back in the 80's. I just wish there were more episodes included. Maybe on the next volume, if there's one.Published on November 28, 2012 by John Cousin
