Popeye The Sailor - An Early Look at What's Going on with Warner's 3rd Volume of Vintage Popeye

Jerry Beck's online interview gives some early, but UNOFFICIAL, details

Posted by David Lambert
Earlier this week we let you know that Jerry Beck, the renowned animation expert - who's authored several books on the subject - was visiting our friend Stu Shostak at Stu's Show, a live call-in interview program on Shokus Internet Radio. That visit took place this past Wednesday, and while I haven't been able to listen to that installment personally, several readers who did get to tune in have told me some of the things Jerry said on the show.

Keep in mind, of course, that Jerry Beck is *NOT* an official spokesperson for Warner Home Video, and was basically speaking casually on the show and responding to call-in questions. So take all info with a grain of salt, as it is not official from the studio, just what Jerry is aware of. Any of it, or all of it, could change by Warner without any input from, or knowledge by Jerry at all.

So, with that warning in mind, let's see what info about Popeye we missed by not tuning in!

To Jerry 's knowledge, Warner is planning to release a 3rd Volume of vintage Popeye cartoons, with two discs that include all remaining black-and-white shorts, by the end of 2008. As always, the footage will be fully restored, and should be completely unedited. Look for all of the cartoons from the World War II era on this upcoming package, and of course there ought to be some extras as well. Would the title of this release be "Popeye the Sailor - Volume 3: 1941-1943, as we've previously speculated? We're not sure, but this sounds like a pretty good guess. Keep in mind, though, that none of this is official yet.

Of course we'll keep an eye on all of it, and update you as further developments occur. It sounds like it will be a great release, though. Stay tuned!
