Popeye The Collection: Volume 1
The Popeye collection volume 1 contains 11 beautifully remastered episodes of the original animated series.
1. A Haul in One (1956)
From IMDB: Popeye and Bluto are, believe it or not, pals and partners in a moving company. (Maybe it's because Popeye isn't squinting here.) Anyhow, Olive has made the mistake of hiring them. She hasn't finished packing yet, so the boys, smitten as soon as she answers the door, compete to help her. Once packed, they compete to move more impressive piles of her belongings. Popeye easily wins these contests, even though Bluto locks him in the van at one point. At the end, Bluto socks Popeye into the piano, then into a table; though he hardly seems to need it, Popeye still eats his spinach, then thrashes Bluto. Written by Jon Reeves
2. Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves (1937)
From IMDB: Popeye the Sailor, accompanied by Olive Oyl and Wimpy, is dispatched to stop the dreaded bandit Abu Hassan and his force of forty thieves.
(Due to the quality of the original medium this episode is deteriated and lacks the high quality you would come to expect from our HD encodes, however a classic is a classic and we did not want to deny you a great episodes just because its not as sharp as we would have likes).
3. Ancient Fistory (1953)
From IMDB: It's the middle ages (sort of); Popeye is working in Blutos Beanery. Bluto is going to the ball where Princess Olive will choose her mate. Popeye's fairy godpappy appears and it's a reverse Cinderella story, with a car created from a can of spinach. Written by Jon Reeves
4. Assault and Flattery (1956)
From IMDB: Bluto is accusing Popeye in judge Wimpy's courtroom. Bluto tells a sad tale of how Popeye attacked him without provocation, but Popeye tells his side, in detail (in other words, a large chunk of _Balmy Swami, A (1949)_ ). Written by Jon Reeves
5. Bride and Gloom (1954)
From IMDB: Popeye is marrying Olive tomorrow; he's ecstatic. She has a dream of the future, including twin sons who prove to be a real handful. When Popeye comes by the next morning, he gets a frosty reception.
6. Cookin' with Gags (1955)
From IMDB: The boys are taking Olive on a picnic. It's April 1, and Bluto plays a series of "jokes" on Popeye, though of course they go beyond the bounds of acceptability, particularly once they get to the picnic grounds; Bluto puts gasoline on the fire he asks Popeye to light and swaps a beehive for the lemonade. Bluto then launches a cruel joke against Olive and frames Popeye. The capper: he replaces Popeye's spinach with a joke can, and runs off with Olive for some canoeing. But Popeye gets the last laugh with an inflatable sea monster. Written by Jon Reeves
7. Customers Wanted (1939)
From IMDB: Popeye and Bluto are running competing penny arcades, trying to bring in customer Wimpy. Of course, he would gladly pay Tuesday for a penny today. And of course, their competing arcades show clips featuring each of them, with well over half this short thus recycled. Written by Jon Reeves
8. Floor Flusher (1954)
From IMDB: Popeye and Bluto stop by to see Olive and fix her leaky faucet. Popeye does it better, and Bluto gets jealous, so he starts rerouting Olive's plumbing and causing all sorts of leaks. Popeye needs some help from the goldfish to get to his spinach. Written by Jon Reeves
9. Popeye for President (1956)
From IMDB: Popeye and Bluto are running for president; it's election day, the vote is tied, and Olive is the only remaining voter.
10. Spree Lunch (1957)
From IMDB: Popeye opens a diner; Bluto pulls one up right across the street. Wimpy comes along, and they compete for his business. The competition escalates, until finally they are throwing things at each other; Wimpy stands between them and snags a complete meal from the stream of objects passing overhead. Another spinach-free Popeye. Written by Jon Reeve
11. Taxi Turvy (1954)
Popeye and Bluto are rival taxi car drivers and they fight over customers including of course Olive Oyl.
