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