Trivia:
This was the first of the "Popeye Color Specials", a trilogy of Technicolor features that were released in the 1930s. These features were over sixteen minutes each (three times as long as a regular Popeye cartoon, and so were considered big-budget adaptations), and were often billed in cinemas alongside/above the main feature.See more »
Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: The sound of the dynamos (illustrating Popeye's spinach-empowered bicep) makes a brief false entrance five seconds before the accompanying visual.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
[Sindbad steps out of his island home, and slaps two lions]
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?

Dazzling early animation feat still entertaining, 16 April 1999
Author: Popeye-8 from Nebraska

Using the Fleischer Brothers' special 3-d backgrounds, Paramount's "Sindbad" is an impressive animation feat, as well as an entertaining and funny cartoon. It has made virtually every "greatest cartoon" list, with no apologies.
