Cartoon Production Information:


A two-reel special release.

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.

Cast Of Characters:

The Spinach Eating Sailor..................Popeye
The Irresistible Damsel.................Olive Oyl
The Hamburger Fiend...........J. Wellington Wimpy
The Two-Headed Giant........................Boola
Rokh.............................The Mighty Eagle
"The Most Remarkable Fellow"...Sindbad The Sailor


To produce special effects, colored lights were thrown on the sets of rocks and mountains, and shadows were animated over them as Sindbad's giant condor flew out.

Jack Mercer has also been credited with voicing Wimpy in this cartoon.

In 2004, Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad The Sailor was one of 25 films added by the Library of Congress' National Film Preservation Board to the National Film Registry.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad The Sailor was one of the better cartoons made by Fleischer Studios. I especially enjoyed the 3-D effeccts. By todays standards they are not that great, but still pretty good. By 1936 standards, they were outstanding. I...  (read more)

I had to rate this cartoon as a five for many many reasons. First of all is the stunning Technicolor. The 3D backgraounds are amazing, and effective.

I agree - this is a great cartoon. This is my favorite Popeye. The '3D' backgrounds were groundbreaking, so to speak. And the under-the-breath comments from Popeye are the best part! One of the more imaginative and well-written...  (read more)
