Storyline

Popeye's nephews are touring a museum of nautical history (only three of them, for some reason). They come to a statue of Sindbad, the world's greatest sailor, and ask Popeye to explain, since *he* is supposed to be the world's greatest sailor. He explains by telling the story of the time he met Sindbad, as seen in part of the earlier short Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor (1936). Inspired by his tale, the nephews adjust the statue. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Use of "Sindbad the Sailor" footage helps
2 October 2001 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

Often, animation companies would pillage their vaults and make compilation films that were short on new ideas but long on recycled film. BIG BAD SINDBAD takes a wide array of scenes from POPEYE MEETS SINDBAD THE SAILOR, but cannot match the animation brilliance. However the story line weaves fairly seemlessly throughout, and the addition of Popeye's nephews as a plot device works well. An above-average 1950's POPEYE production, mostly because of the old film use.
