Just spotted this interesting tidbit of information from Bill hunt's Digital bits website and it states the following:

"Also today, our friends at The Warner Archive Collection have just announced the 12/18 Blu-ray release of the Hammer Films classic Horror of Dracula (1958), staring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Sea Hawk(1940) also streets on Blu-ray that day, and look for Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s – Volume 1 and The Blue Night (1973) on Blu-ray on 12/11"

I'm just happy we're finally going to be seeing the Famous colorized Popeye cartoons starting to come out and we could see a completion of those as well, looks promising.

Just spotted cover art of this and it will be made available on BOTH formats then...sweet!!


Lost at sea for decades - this set collects the first two Technicolor® seasons of Popeye's animated theatrical shorts (1943-44 and 1944-45), making them available for the first time ever on home video: complete, intact and outrageously funny. What else would you expect from a two-fisted, spinach-munching sailor man?The 1940s brought new sights and sounds to America's favorite cartoon star. Regulars Olive Oyl and Bluto return, while Popeye resumes his riotous relationship with his shipmate Shorty and his naughty nephews Pipeye, Poopeye, Peepeye and Pupeye. With the addition of full color, cartoonists were now free to let loose with journeys to exotic lands and give Popeye a fresh stock of new friends and foes.But it's the eternal love triangle, Popeye and Bluto competing for the attention of Olive, that drives the majority of these zany situations - as well as the hilarious action-packed gags. Whether our heroes are posing as circus acrobats or puppeteers or even taking turns at being Superman, these gems from the Golden Age of Hollywood will blow you down with laughter.

DVD/MOD Version...$19.99 for 14 shorts...


Blu ray version...$21.99 for 14 shorts...
