Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor (1936)

Directed by Dave Fleischer

Short | Animation | Comedy


In “Popeye Meets Sindbad (Bluto),” Popeye’s perennial enemy almost outshines him. Bluto is in rare form, his rich, bass voice rendering with gusto a catchy tune. He is also charismatic as a comic relief. This cartoon gem, one of Popeye’s best, comes in vibrant colors thanks to having been digitally revamped.

Length 16 minutes


Gus Wickie | Mae Questel | Jack Mercer | Lou Fleischer

Viewing Notes

This was the opener for tonight’s Chicago Film Society screening. 16mm color cartoon that is wonderful. Popeye’s remarks to himself almost under his breath are hilarious. Reminded me how much I loved Popeye when I was a child.
