With TV reruns of the Fleischer/Famous Studios theatrical shorts proving that Popeye still packed a spinach-powered punch that delivered smash ratings, King Features commissioned a new series of Sailor Man shorts under the aegis of executive producer Al Brodax. The TV incarnation of Popeye made up for its scaled-back animation with a broadened narrative scope and scale while still staying true to the source, thanks to the continued use of voice actors Jack Mercer (Popeye), Mae Questel (Olive) and Jackson Beck (now called Brutus) as well as the use of veteran Popeye animation talents then working at Paramount Cartoon Studios. Adding to the “I yam what I yam” authenticity is the addition of a number of Thimble Theater comic strip characters making their cartoon debuts – including King Blozo, Toar and Sea Hag! Among the cartoons contained in this stupendous 2-Disc, 72-Episode volume are all of the Paramount TV Popeye cartoons.
