Cartoon Production Information:



Original Release Poster


A two-reel special release. This short- along with Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad The Sailor (1936) 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.

Also released as "Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves."

Many prints of this title are in pretty bad shape. It has been rumored that the negative has deteriorated beyond restoration.

Billed at the time of release as "the only three-dimensional, three-color Technicolor short feature cartoon."

Note by another viewer: A new dye transfer print has been made in that past 10 years and run on Turner's TNT. Not only was it sharp, but the sound are dynamic, and the fight sequence was in sync, too.

Closing theme:

I may be a shorty, but I licked The 40!
I'm Popeye The Sailor Man!

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

I am nearly 45 years old and I have never seen a better Popeye cartoon than this one. The older I get, the more I appreciate the earlier Popeye cartoons. It's a pity that more longer ones, especially of this quality weren't made. I'm just...  (read more)

This one has to be the best of any of the Popeye cartoons! There's humor (Popeye says "Abdul Hassin got it anymore" after geting his clothes back, & he says, "I'm burning the candle at both ends." get it? I think this...  (read more)

The Fleischer Studios surpass the greatness of Sindbad in this amazingly funny cartoon. From the moment the iris opens on Ali Baba (Bluto)and the forty thieves on a magnificent desert 3D setback you know it's going to be a thrill paced ride! The title...  (read more)
