Trivia:
This film had some of its scenes shot in Tabletop. This was a process that combined 2D and 3D animation - miniature sets were built on a stage, then the characters were then animated and superimposed over this background, so that various objects could pass in front/behind them. This created an impression of depth and quality to the viewer.See more »
Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: 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 »
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?
[the lions roar]
Sindbad the Sailor:Sindbad the Sailor!

Still ahead of the game, 15 January 2005
Author: Gary170459 from Derby, UK

Along with the Ali Baba one this is my favourite Popeye cartoon, I must admit partly because it's 3 times as long as most of the cartoons in the Canon. It gave much more scope to the Fleischer's to ...fleish it out a bit, less frenetic movement - some of the time!

All you should love about these Paramount Popeye's - if you're reading this - is here in spades (with Technicolour), from the marvellous panning 3d opening displaying Bluto's island and denizens to the incessant rambling mutterings of Popeye, Bluto, Olive and Wimpy. The storyline and animation are both amusing and inventive in the usual unusual Fleischer manner, and not a second is wasted. Although it's definitely not for the pc and over zealous animal rights activists!

Best bit: The savage looking giant two-headed caveman crooning a sweet lullaby to Popeye lying dazed in his lap.
