[Abu Hassan and his forty thieves ride across the desert]
Abu Hassan:[singing] 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! Abu Hassan!
Thieves:Abu Hassan!
Abu Hassan:My game's the toughest / But I'm the roughest / and that's how I'm / Abu Hassan!
Thieves:Abu Hassan!
Abu Hassan:You've got to hand it, to this bad bandit / Cause I'm a terrible guy!

Very Remarkable! The Best Popeye Cartoon!, 16 July 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

Popeye returns in this totally hysterical cartoon from the year of 1937, and like I just mentioned, this is a totally hysterical laugh fest! I mean that you are going to be laughing and laughing like crazy when you watch this!

This cartoon short film overall is transcendently hysterical, there are laughs in every single scene, and that means that there is not one part of this that is not funny at all, not one at all. This in fact is Popeye's best cartoon short film that has ever been made, because this is just as good as it gets! I mean Popeye just keeps on bringing one thing with him, that one thing is laughs! I remember that when I first saw this movie, I was in pain from laughter, I am telling you that I was laughing so hard that no sound was even coming out, this really is that hysterical!

So all in all, if you are a huge fan of Popeye and want to see a hysterical Popeye cartoon, then this is the one!

By the way, considering that I am a very huge fan of Popeye, I bought this on DVD, and so I can watch this at any time that I want to! Like quite a lot of other Popeye cartoons that I have seen, this one delivers plenty of laughs!

Well I have said this already but, I totally love this cartoon, I don't know where I would be without it!

10/10
