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 »

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!

I love Fleischer's Popeye better than all the other versions of the character, and this is one of my favorite out of the "Arabian Nights" trilogy of featurettes in color; "Aladdin and his Wonderful Lamp" too.
I love the desert scene where the three heroes Popeye,Olive Oyl and Wimpy trudge through the sand and Wimpy sees a feast which was really a mirage; I also love the "tank roll" part too. I also love the scene at the cafe,when Popeye snatches Abu Hassen/Bluto's underwear from him...without removing his clothes! Oh! and one last scene that love is when Olive give Popeye a kiss while pacing on guard duty back and forth on the dock.
