    Just found out on The Bugs Bunny Video Guide via Facebook that Popeye: Volume 3 will be coming out on a date TBA but we have official cover art for the third volume which will include cartoons from 1948-1949 and here is that listing of 17 cartoons for this latest DVD and Blu-Ray set...

    Prepare for 17 newly presented adventures featuring our favorite spinach-eating sailor man and his lovely leading lady, Olive Oyl. This set finishes out Popeye’s second decade of screen stardom with cartoons originally released to movie theaters in 1948 and 1949. Providing more globe-trotting and time-traveling adventures, the cartoons have been restored to look their lavish best utilizing the techniques of three classic color systems.
    The Polacolor process was a short-lived 3-strip technique designed to be an alternative to Technicolor®. The studio gave it a try on a group of cartoons produced during this period, and the results are particularly striking – with fresh restorations that now show their proper, vibrant hues.
    In these cartoons, Popeye and Olive travel back to prehistoric times, ancient Greece and the Sherwood Forest. They visit Plymouth Rock and the Old West, then battle assorted baddies in the Egyptian desert, the freezing Arctic and the Ozarks. Of course, Bluto is back as Popeye’s number-one nemesis, tackling the sailor man as a rival lumberjack, a fanatic flying ace and a lecherous vaudeville hypnotist.
    But that’s not all. Popeye also has his fists full with a pair of pet dogs, irritating houseflies and a quartet of spinach-hating, sound-alike nephews. He ultimately meets his match when Olive decides to throw her hat in the ring and makes a run for U.S. president!
    Hilarious sight gags, gorgeous cartoon art and more action-packed goodness from the golden age of animation: Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s, Volume 3 will leave you rooting – and toot-tooting – for more!

    Collection includes:
    Olive Oyl for President
    Wigwam Whoopee
    Pre-Hysterical Man
    Popeye Meets Hercules
    A Wolf in Sheik's Clothing
    Spinach vs Hamburgers
    Snow Place Like Home
    Robin Hood-Winked
    Symphony in Spinach
    Popeye's Premiere
    Lumberjack and Jill
    Hot Air Aces
    A Balmy Swami
    Tar with a Star

    Barking Dogs Don't Fite

    If and when I do find out the official release date for this item, I'll be sure to post that info onto this posting. So excited about this and let's bring on Volume 4 as we start the 1950s in the not too distant future.

    Great news! So if this finishes out the 1940s, do we then start "The 1950s Volume 1?"
