Buff sailor man Popeye arrives in an awkward seaside town called Sweethaven. There he meets Wimpy, a hamburger-loving man; Olive Oyl, the soon-to-be love of his life; and Bluto, a huge, mean pirate who is out to make Sweethaven pay for no good reason. Popeye also discovers his long-lost Pappy in the middle of it all, so with a band of his new friends, Popeye heads off to stop Bluto, and he's got the power of spinach, which Popeye detests, to bust Bluto right in the mush. Watch as Popeye mops the floor with punks in a burger joint, stops a greedy taxman, takes down a champion boxer, and even finds abandoned baby Swee'pea. He's strong to the finish 'cause he eats his spinach.Written by

This movie, and Mork & Mindy (1978), are the two projects that helped launch Robin Williams' career, yet in stand-up comedy, he constantly jokes about trying to distance himself from both, though he brings both up. See more »
When Popeye finds his pappy tied to the chair hanging from the ceiling in Bluto's ship, he takes his pipe out of his mouth before he hugs his pappy. Seconds later, the pipe is back in his mouth. See more »
Fooey! The Commadore. Besides Wimpy, I hate him best.

There is a statement in the closing credits: "Our gratitude to an international crew whose artistry helped to bring Sweethaven and the world of Popeye to life." See more »
A recent television version is altered in at least one way. Bluto's song "I'm Mean" is eliminated from the soundtrack as he trashes the Oyls' family home waiting for Olive Oyl. See more »
I'm Popeye The Sailor Man! I'm Popeye The Say-lor Man! I'm Strong To Dee Finnish Cause I Eat Me Spinach I'm Popeye The Sailor Man!
Two hours of pure delight! I saw this film on television years ago and it keeps on getting better and better. I have always been a Popeye fan and the cartoons from the thirties are always fun to watch.
While the acting is definitely not the best, it is a cute movie and can be enjoyed whenever it is on TV. A fun movie is fun no matter how many times you see it.
While the film is nothing compared to the wonderful cartoons of the thirties through the fifties, Popeye creates a world like none other. We can relax and have fun with Popeye as he journeys with Ms. Duvall.
A fun movie for all to watch. Recommended especially for the little ones.
