Popeye The Sailor - Complete List of Extras for Volume 2: 1938-1940 DVDs

Animation Historian and DVD Producer Jerry Beck Provides All The Info

Posted by David Lambert
Late last week we brought you Warner's announcement (including a listing of all the included shorts) for Popeye the Sailor - Volume 2: 1938-1940, a 2-DVD set coming on June 17th. It continues the collectible releases which begain with last year's Volume 1 four-disc set. However, Warner's announcement didn't mention any bonus material, and other sites reporting on the upcoming release did mention some extras. Extras which - as it turns out - will *not* be on this set,such as Max Fleischer's 1939 animated film Gulliver's Travels.

The other day we told you that animation historian Jerry Beck, who worked on this DVD as well as others (Woody Woodpecker, Looney Tunes), would be interviewed yesterday on the Shokus Internet Radio program Stu's Show, and talk about this release and the supplements on it. He has also posted about it at his Cartoon Brew blog, and we encourage you to head over there and read his take on Gulliver and whether or not it's a big deal that it's not on this set. He also posted the complete final list of extras for this release, and he's given us permission to bring them to you here. Thanks so much, Jerry! If you missed his appearance on Stu's Show last night, then be sure to catch the daily reruns of it this week at the website.
