Probably the weakest in "Popeye in Arabian Nights" trilogy ,but still got enough Popeye charm to keep the audience at seats., 26 June 2006
Author: njdimic

Of the three "Popeye in the Arabian Nights" cartoons, this is my least favorite. One of the reasons are probably that I watched this more than the other two ,and the other is next... In the first two cartoons (Popeye meets Sindbad ,Popeye meets 40 thieves) ,Popeye just encounters the villains from those story lines (who are performed bu Bluto), but this is just classic hundred times seen before Aladdin story. Only in this version ,Aladdin impersonates Popeye (it supposed to be the the other way around ,I know ,but that's the truth) ,and the princess impersonates Olive. The villain is ,as known by anyone who heard the Aladdin story for just once ,the evil wizard who wants to take the magic lamp away from Aladdin and marry the princess. Unfortunately he wasn't very interesting ,he wasn't performed by Bluto ,and he didn't came up with some memorable gags or jokes. However ,Popeye and Olive still didn't lose their charm and they still managed to come up with some classic Popeye and Olive jokes. It's worth to watch this classic just for that. You like Aladdin? You love Popeye? Watch this cartoon!
