It's not at all surprising that this Popeye biography was included as an extra with the four-disc set of Popeye cartoons released a few years ago. It consists of lots of fans of the series talking about the history of the Segar comic series, the Fleischer Brothers cartoons and the later Famous Studios and King Features releases.
What I appreciate are two things--the amount of information contained in this short as well as the critical analysis of the quality of the cartoons. In other words, the folks aren't such insane fans that they ignore that the later cartoons were rather terrible--and the 1960s ones were just terrible.
All in all, a really great little film that is something for fans to see and appreciate. I know I sure did.
