One of the best dam Popeye cartoons ever!, 19 October 2006
Author: emasterslake from United States

This as well as "Popeye and the 40 thieves" is a classic.

The story begins with an uncharted island filled with beasts and monsters. The ruler is Sinbad the Sailor(aka Bluto) who considers himself to be the greatest Sailor of the seven seas. But out of the blue Popeye, Wimpy, and Olive came sailing into Sinbad's territory. Sinbad sends a Rohk Bird to destroy their ship and kidnap Olive Oil.

After the shipwreck, Popeye and Wimpy went to shore, to rescue Olive. When he finds her he meets face to face with Sinbad. He says that he's the greatest sailor of the 7 seas, but Popeye tells him that he's wrong about that. Sinbad sends his beasts on Popeye, who were easy to defeat. Outraged and full of anger, Sinbad challenges Popeye to a fight to determine who really is the Greatest Sailor of the 7 seas.

This was the very first Popeye cartoon to be done in Technicolor and has some scenes done in 3-D scenery to give it a stand out look. It's also one of the few Popeye cartoons to be more than 15 minutes long.

In my opinion it's one of the best Popeye cartoons that ever existed. And a must see for the Popeye fans.
