Storyline

Popeye and Olive prepare to make a movie while his nephews watch. The movie is a significant portion of Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves (1937), which makes up over 80% of this release (beginning with Popeye, Olive, and Wimpy suffering in the desert), and despite admonitions, the nephews get involved a couple times, most notably tossing Popeye his can of spinach.

Disappointing cartoon, to say the least.
19 December 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This cartoon has its moments, but most of them are the ones found in the old Fleischer Studios footage that comprises about seven minutes out of the running length, but less than half of the original cartoon. The original most of this was cribbed from is infinitely better than the framing material and the re-looped dialogue can't begin to equal the original. I find the new animation irritating at best. Watch the source cartoon instead. This is a waste of time and is just sad by the inevitable (unavoidable, really) comparison of the Fleischer Studios work to that of the later Famous Studios Paramount efforts. Others may find this worthwhile, but I certainly don't.
