    NEW 2019 1080p MASTERS-FROM 4K SCANS OF THE ORIGINAL NEGATIVES!

    POPEYE THE SAILOR: THE 1940s-VOLUME 2 (1946-1947)

    Run Time 107:00
    Subtitles English SDH
    Sound Quality DTS HD-Master Audio 2.0 - English
    Aspect Ratio ORIGINAL ASPECT RATIO - 1.37:1, 4 X 3 FULL FRAME
    Product Color COLOR
    Disc Configuration BD 50

    Here come 15 previously unreleased adventures featuring our favorite two-fisted fighter that are literally out of this world! The secret to the seaman's success is "location, location, location," and with this new collection, you'll travel with Popeye and crew into outer space, all around the globe and under the sea!

    Continuing the chronological theatrical releases, this set covers the years 1946 and 1947. Popeye not only rockets to Mars, he explores the ocean deep, becomes a cowboy out West, fights pirates on the high seas and tackles wild game in Africa. He and his lady love, Olive Oyl, also find romance (and usually a Bluto-like rival) while traveling back to medieval times or exploring the fictional Middle Easter city of Badgag, as well as climbing mountain peaks in the frozen Klondike.

    This is classic animation at its finest - featuring zany cartoon action from the pen of veteran Jim Tyer and powerfully dynamic direction from animation legend Bill Tytla. Packed with a punch, loaded with laughs and heaping with heart, The 1940s, Volume 2 comes to port with plenty of Popeye appeal.

    Collection includes:
    House Tricks?
    Service with a Guile
    Klondike Casanova
    Peep in the Deep
    Rocket to Mars
    Rodeo Romeo
    The Fistic Mystic
    The Island Fling
    Abusement Park
    I'll Be Skiing Ya
    Popeye and the Pirates
    The Royal-Four Flusher
    Wotta Knight
    Safari So Good
    All's Fair at the Fair

    Does anyone know if some company somewhere has released the three double-length POPEYE special cartoons (MEETS ALI BABA, MEETS ALADDIN AND HIS WONDERFUL LAMP, MEETS SINBAD) on Blu-ray? I have the DVD's but pine for better.

    The best option is to get WA to put them as special features on future releases. WA has the quality scans from restored prints. Anyone else is likely just to release uprezed versions from the Warner dvds.

    that should leave 6 more releases to go, if i remember correctly someone on this forum or one of the others stated that the title listed for the first disc was listed as volume 1 of 8 or something like that, i hope they go back after all of this and readdress all of the Fleischer shorts with the same beautiful HD presentation. and if they were feeling generous' with Fleischer material i wouldn't mind seeing the Superman shorts get a glorious presentation either.

    I am assuming as well that this will also be made available on the DVD format as well, but there was no specific date as to when this will be released as the WBSHOP.com still doesn't have it up on their site as of this notation, but awaiting for this to also show up on Amazon, Walmart or even Deepdiscount to reflect a better pricing structure.

    It will be very interesting to see if the cut footage from Popeye and the Pirates still exists on the original negative, from which I infer these transfers are derived.

    If they continue to do two years at a time, they can be done with the color Famous shorts in seven, with 15-17 shorts on a disc.

    i hope these are not tampered with, and presented as they were original intended, but time to address the elephant in the room so to speak, it's Popeye the Sailor- in the 1940's and i understand the difference, along with every other intelligent person that the depictions were wrong then and now. but don't give me some Boomerang cut of the shorts and try to pass it off. trying to hide history and pretend it never happened is just as big of an offence.

    Rocket to Mars - Japanese stereotype

    The Fistic Mystic - Black stereotype

    The Island Fling - Black African stereotype

    Wotta Knight - Black stereotype and Bluto in blackface.

    5. A Wolf in Sheik's Clothing (original titles unaltered by a.a.p.)
    6. Spinach vs. Hamburgers (anthology short; borrows footage, with original respective underscores, from "The Anvil Chorus Girl," "Pop-Pie A La Mode" and "She-Sick Sailors")
    7. Snow Place Like Home
    8. Robin Hood-Winked (parody of "Robin Hood")

    I guess we can expect Vol.3 in December. Since Vol.1 was in Dec. 2018 and this took 6 months too release in June 2019. Two volumes a year ?

    Nothing has been announced for a volume 3. They are waiting on sales of Volume 2 so December might be a bit soon.

    It's important that Volume 2 sells well before WAC will think of a Volume 3.

    Jerry Beck has shared screens of some of the cartoons on Facebook. What the cartoons look like if you stream them on the Boomerang app (left) vs. what they'll look like on the new Blu-Ray (right).
