Cartoon Production Information:
This was the first Popeye cartoon produced in color, and was the first Fleischer cartoon to be nominated for an Academy Award. Paramount would not fund an animated feature-length film. One reason that this cartoon was made was to demonstrate that a cartoon could be a real attraction. It used the Fleischers' experimental multiplane 3-D effects. This short- along with Popeye The Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves (1937) and Popeye Meets Aladdin And His Wonderful Lamp (1939)- were the only Fleischer-produced Popeye animated shorts ever to be released in Technicolor. Popeye would not go to color full-time until Famous Studio's 1943 release, Her Honor The Mare.
