During the battle scene with Abu Hassan and the forty thieves,
the dialogue, the sound effects, and partially the music are out of sync with the animation. This was rectified on the DVD release of "Popeye the Sailor: 1933-1938, Volume 1." See more »
[Abu Hassan and his forty thieves ride across the desert]
You better lock up your doors today / 'cause Abu Hassan is on his way / Go in hiding, when I go riding / Just me and the 40 thieves! / Your wives and children, and money too / I'll steal them from you before I'm through / I'm out gunning, so start running / From me and the forty thieves!

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.
