Popeye The Sailor Revived

The Cartoon Renewal Studios has restored, remastered and colorized the 1937 two-reel cartoon Popeye The Sailor Meets Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves. Watch as Popeye, accompanied by Olive Oyl and Wimpy, challenge the dreaded Abu Hassan and his force of forty thieves.

Some will complain and rage over the colorized processing, but the sad fact is: Most kids nowadays will never watch black and white cartoons. So if you want younger viewers to see these classic works, they’ve got to not only be restored to improve their quality but also colorized.

The work here is pretty dang sweet! This vintage Fleischer Studios cartoon, originally distributed by Paramount Pictures, springs back to life! Direction is by Dave Fleischer, with Jack Mercer supplying vocals for Popeye and Mae Questal for Olive Oyl.
