Saturday Morning Cartoon: Max Fleischer's Popeye

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Sat, Feb 20, 2010 at 8:07 AM

In this edition of Saturday Morning Cartoon, we're once again celebrating the brilliance of Fleischer Studios, which for my money produced the best cartoons of the first half of last century. We've already watched Fleischer's Superman, and this week we're checking out their version of the always hilarious Popeye. Like the Betty Boop series, Fleischer's Popeye is quirky, innovative as all get out and loads of fun. In this episode, Popeye rushes to Goon Island to rescue his long lost Pappy, but those Goons aren't gonna let him go without a huge fight. Good thing there's some spinach available. From 1938, here's Popeye in Goonland.

As always, your suggestions for Saturday Morning Cartoon are appreciated!
