Popeye The Sailor: The 1940s Volume 1 01/15/19

The Warner Archive Collection

Reviewer Charlie Largent proves that he yam what he yam Yis what he Yis with this look at the second generation of the sailor-boy’s adventures, without the brothers Fleischer. The first fourteen color 1940s Popeye cartoons make their Blu-ray debut, including a ‘banned’ color cartoon entitled Pop-Pie a la Mode. Interesting that the ‘Famous Players’ color cartoons would drop all the weird, great Fleischer characters, but add offensive ethnic stereotypes now and then … or is my memory faulty? The set is billed as sourced from 4K scans from the original negatives. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
