More Supplements Than You Can Stuff in a Can of Spinach!

Posted by David Lambert
Last month's announcement for the July 31st release of Popeye the Sailor - Volume 1: 1933-1938 had some basic info about the contents and extras on the set, but last week's press release gives all the official details. Here's that portion of the press release for you:
    Popeye The Sailor 1933-1938 Volume 1 includes more than nine hours of cartoons -- 58 (7- to10-minute) theatrical black-and white-shorts and two two-reeler 20-minute color cartoons. Some of the most memorable shorts from the DVD are the remastered "Blow Me Down!" and a cameo appearance by Betty Boop dressed as a hula dancer in the 1933 "Popeye the Sailor" cartoon, the short in which Popeye made his first animated appearance. The four-Disc DVD set also includes the Academy Award-nominated "Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor" and more than five hours of incredible bonus features, including:

    • Popeye Commentaries – Including historians, animators and filmmakers
    • "Behind the Toons" – These featurettes are in depth looks at select cartoons, characters and creators
    • "I Yam What I Am: The Story of Popeye the Sailor Man" – All-new documentary
    • "The Evolution of Animation: The History of the Fleischer Studios" – All-new documentary
    • "Max Fleischer and the New York Style" – All-new documentary
    • Bonus Popeye Shorts – Including "Let’s Sing with Popeye" and "Popular Science"
