    Thanks to the animated-short series, Popeye became even more of a sensation than he had been in comic strips, and bypolls showed that the sailor was Hollywood's most popular cartoon character. Paramount then sold the Popeye film catalog to Associated Artists Productionswhich was bought out by United Artists in He'll randomly beat the shit out of someone unprovoked on one page and then tell kids to eat their spinach on the same page, and it only adds to the strip's strangeness and charm. Printer Friendly With theatrical shorts and an additional cartoons produced for television, keeping track of Popeye cartoons is a task best left to the truly devoted.

    Extras None, except for an obnoxious anti-piracy PSA a lame "jokey" one featuring clips from "The Wizard of Oz" that plays as the disc loads, because, you know, just because toddlers are too young to use the computer doesn't mean we shouldn't berate them anyway. Anything can happen. Popeye has made brief parody appearances in modern animated productions, including: A typical Popeye style rescue was spoofed in The Simpsons episode " Jaws Wired Shut ". Because some of the cartoons contain material which may be considered offensive to modern audiences, each disc in this collection includes a title card disclaimer which summarizes that the cartoons depict sexist, ethnic and racist stereotypes that may be offensive to modern audiences.

    In this volume, for example, he slugs Olive Oyl more than once, and when Popeye finds him, he sends an octopus to kill him. It was an hour-long animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productionswhich tried its best to retain the style of the original comic strip Popeye returned to his original costume and Brutus to his original name of Blutowhile complying with the prevailing content restrictions on violence. Now, we come to the bad news. In both stories, we learn that a millionaire wants the animal in question to exploit its magical powers Bernice the whiffle hen brought good luck.

Popeye Vol. 1 book

Once again, reference to spinach was conspicuously absent. This sequence has never been republished since its original publication 75 years ago. His distinctive speech pattern is a joy. Jun 09, Fabio rated it it was amazing Believe it or not, Segar's Popeye strips from the 30's are the most fun, intelligent, irriverent, original and inventive rich comics ever made.

To the layman, all those titles become a blur, especially once you leave the safe harbor of the Fleischer and Famous Studios shorts and enter the murky depths of kiddie TV.

For these cartoons, Bluto's name was changed to "Brutus", as King Features believed at the time that Paramount owned the rights to the name "Bluto". This volume also contains the conclusion of Donald Phelps's incisive and articulate critical essay on Segar's work, "Real People, Real Theatre.

It is the final volume in this series. The Dolby mono soundtrack fares slightly better, presenting dialogue and music clearly enough, if in a flat tone.

Popeye as he appeared in Drawn Together InLions Gate Entertainment produced a computer-animated television special, Popeye's Voyage: The Quest for Pappywhich was made to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Popeye.

And, perhaps even more importantly, it's a lot of fun, too! It is, if possible, even worse than it sounds. The Color Specials have also had their original opening titles restored, marking the first time in a half-century they have been shown in their original format.

Segar was a remarkble cartoonist and an inventive storyteller, and these classic adventures are strongly recommended for all libraries. Sadly, the strips in this volume lack some of the freshness of those in previous volumes.
