A mangy cat on the verge of starvation finds a tiny canary and a bottle of 'Jumbo-Gro' fertilizer, which gives him an idea that leads to giant cats, dogs, mice and canaries chasing each other round Lilliputian towns and cities...
The story of a little boy who would only talk in sound effects. With story by Dr. Seuss (and Bill Scott of Rocky and Bullwinkle fame) this cartoon won the Oscar for best short subject (animated) for 1950.
Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are cleaning a large clock. Among the complications: Mickey fights a sleeping stork that doesn't want to leave, Donald gets tangled up in the main-spring, and Goofy is inside the bell when the clock strikes four.
After sending his giant bird, Rokh, to wreck Popeye's boat and kidnap Olive Oyl, Sindbad forces Olive to dance for him by firing buckshot at her feet with a pea-shooter. Popeye attempts to rescue her while J. Wellington Wimpy follows a duck around with a meat-grinder. After Popeye disposes of Rokh and Sindbad's two-headed, Yiddish-accented giant, Boola, it's a battle to the "finich" between the two legendary sailors. Written by

After Sindbad sings to Popeye the line "Who's the most remarkable, extraordinary fellow?", the animals respond "You!", and you can then see some of them mouthing "Sindbad the Sailor", but that line is not heard. This happens again on the very next verse. See more »

Sindbad the Sailor:
I'm Sindbad the Sailor, so hearty and hale / I live on an island on the back of a whale / It's a whale of an island - that's not a bad joke - / Its lord and its master is this handsome bloke! Who's the most remarkable extra-ordinary fellow?
[the lions roar]
Sindbad the Sailor:
Sindbad the Sailor!

I never really liked watching Popeye, not even as a kid. However I've always enjoyed watching this 16 minutes long Popeye adventure, I've watched it many times and it still hasn't lost any of its power.
I think the reason why I like this cartoon so much is because of the story. It really reminds me of an adventure from the Greek Odyssey by Homer, I always enjoyed watching cartoons and life action movies about the Odyssey when I was a kid.
The animations are not bad, especially not the backgrounds and those for the giant bird, which also happens to be my favorite part of the movie.
There are some spectacular moments and I still think that this movie is very watchable for children these days even though the cartoon is almost 70 years old(!).
