Aladdin And His Won­der­ful Lamp (1939) — Pop­eye The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Olive has a job at Sur­prise Pic­tures as a script girl when she dreams up a story of Pop­eye in the Aladdin tale. Pop­eye is a poor young man tricked by an evil magi­cian who tries to use him to get the lamp. The plot fails, and Pop­eye uses the lamp to become a prince and woo the princess of old Per­sia (played by Olive). The magi­cian tricks the princess into giv­ing him the lamp, and takes her for himself.

Even Aladdin/Popeye and the genie of the lamp (who looks and sounds like come­dian Lew Lehr) are no match for the wicked vil­lain until spinach defeats his evil power, allow­ing our hero to marry the princess. In the end, Olive’s story is rejected by the movie stu­dio, and the dream ends with Olive in a sea of scripts.
