Upon hearing of the evil deeds of the bandit Abu Hassan, Popeye, accompanied by Olive Oyl and J. Wellington Wimpy, flies to Arabia. Olive is kidnapped by Abu Hassan, who forces her to do the laundry for his Forty Thieves. Popeye sneaks into their hideout to rescue her, but finds himself outnumbered forty-one to one. Written by

The story is inspired by the story "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves", but Ali Baba is only mentioned in the title and doesn't appear at all in the film. It could be argued, though, that Popeye takes Ali Baba's role in the tale. See more »
Abu Hassan is only a head or two taller than Popeye. Abu enters a cave with a door just tall enough to admit himself and his mount, but seconds later Popeye comes up to the same door which now seems to be ten times the height of a man. See more »
[Abu Hassan and his forty thieves ride across the desert]

In a vast Abrabian desert there's a group of thieves lead by Bruno(Ali Baba) and the 40 thieves. As they rob and steal everything in site. Popeye, Olive, and Wimpy run a coast guard post. When they got word to be on the watch for thieves. Which takes them on an air travel towards the Abrabian desert. After traveling for many days and nights, they finally made it to civilization which is one of the sites that Ali Baba has set his eyes on. And it's up to Popeye to fight and take down this aggressive thief.
Like "Popeye meets Sinbad" this one is worthy of being one of the best Popeye cartoons ever made.
It's original, it's humorous, and it has plenty of great moments with your spinach loving sailor.
Highly recommended to those who liked the Popeye meets Sinbad one.
