"Well blow me down!" Just in time to celebrate Popeye's 75th birthday, this special DVD offers a hardy helping of exciting adventures starring the loveable underdog with an affinity for spinach. Popeye first appeared back in 1929 in Elzie Segar's comic strip, "Thimble Theatre." Although he started out as a minor character, Popeye quickly caught the attention of animation pioneer Max Fleischer who made a financial agreement with Segar and began his own series of cartoons that launched the unlikely hero to fame. First in a long line of Fleischer short features, "Popeye The Sailor," a 1933 Betty Boop cartoon, marked Popeye's first silver screen appearance. Many more adventures followed, making Popeye one of the most adored and widely recognizable characters in animation history. Are you one of Popeye's millions of fans? Then grab a can of spinach, come up on deck and join Olive, Bluto, Little Swee' Pea and many more amazing characters for the adventure of a lifetime.
