Storyline

The story of Aladdin is portrayed by Popeye and Olive Oyl here. It all begins when an evil sorcerer coaxes Aladdin (Popeye) to a dangerous cave to retrieve the magic lamp. When he retrieves the lamp, the sorcerer tries to trap Aladdin in the cave, but drops the lamp in first. When the lamp is rubbed, a magic genie pops out and grants Aladdin a wish of being a prince to fall in love with the beautiful princess (Olive Oyl). But now the evil sorcerer has kidnapped the princess and sends evil monsters after Aladdin, but with the help of his spinach power, he can put the trouble right.

Quotes

Popeye/Aladdin: [singing] What can I do for you? / I'd do most anything you asked me to / I'd go and get that pot of gold from the rainbow, and bring it where you are / And then, I'd hitch your wagon to a star... / What can I do for you? / Hey, how'd ya like to have yer dreams come true? / I'd like to make ya happy, through and through! / 'Deed I do! / So what can I do for you?

Popeye The Sailor Meets Aladdin And His Wonderful Lamp
1 July 2000 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

A POPEYE Cartoon.

Surprise Pictures scriptwriter Olive Oyl dreams-up a film version of ALADDIN AND HIS WONDERFUL LAMP, starring her spinach-munching boyfriend & herself.

This was the third in a series of 3 excellent two-reel cartoons, created by Max Fleischer, in which Popeye & his friends are interpolated into the classic stories of The Arabian Nights. They feature great animation and taut, fast-moving plots. Meant to be shown in movie theaters, they are miles ahead of their Saturday Morning counterparts. Jack Mercer is the voice of Popeye; Mae Questel does the honors for Olive Oyl.
