Prepare for 17 newly presented adventures featuring our favorite spinach-eating sailor man and his lovely leading lady, Olive Oyl. This set finishes out Popeye’s second decade of screen stardom with cartoons originally released to movie theaters in 1948 and 1949. Providing more globe-trotting and time-traveling adventures, the cartoons have been restored to look their lavish best utilizing the techniques of three classic color systems.

The Polacolor process was a short-lived 3-strip technique designed to be an alternative to Technicolor®. The studio gave it a try on a group of cartoons produced during this period, and the results are particularly striking – with fresh restorations that now show their proper, vibrant hues.

In these cartoons, Popeye and Olive travel back to prehistoric times, ancient Greece and the Sherwood Forest. They visit Plymouth Rock and the Old West, then battle assorted baddies in the Egyptian desert, the freezing Arctic and the Ozarks. Of course, Bluto is back as Popeye’s number-one nemesis, tackling the sailor man as a rival lumberjack, a fanatic flying ace and a lecherous vaudeville hypnotist.
But that’s not all. Popeye also has his fists full with a pair of pet dogs, irritating houseflies and a quartet of spinach-hating, sound-alike nephews. He ultimately meets his match when Olive decides to throw her hat in the ring and makes a run for U.S. president!

Hilarious sight gags, gorgeous cartoon art and more action-packed goodness from the golden age of animation: Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s, Volume 3 will leave you rooting – and toot-tooting – for more!

  • Olive Oyl for President

That's great news, but they are milking it for all they can get.

@BlitzEpidemic to tell you the truth I would love to see a bigger blu-ray set released, with more blu-ray discs instead of a signle blu-ray disc release, and for them to double up on the shorts for each volume release.


but Jerry Beck said on Stu's Show that this is the only way for classic animation, to continue to be released on blu-ray/dvd.


Jerry Beck also said said this way was the optimal way to keep the restoration work financially viable.


please keep this in mind when, Warner Home Video first started putting out POPEYE DVD's in 2007, they started out with a four-disc set and it did not sell well. Then they tried two different 2-disc sets of the black and white cartoons and they did not sell well either. The single disc blu-ray format is selling well.


it was also said that the famous "Censored 11" cartoons are still not coming anytime soon, on dvd/blu-ray but the Popeye releases have opened the window to allow a little more wiggle room for other slightly controversial material.
