CotD: Popeye’s first color cartoon “Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad The Sailor” was a two-reeler; twice as long as a standard short of the time.
Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad The Sailor (1936) — Popeye the Sailor Theatrical Cartoon Series
Popeye and Olive Oyl visit the mysterious island of Sindbad and his two-headed giant, lions, dragons and other fabulous creatures of legend. Sindbad boasts that he is the greatest until he hears “Popeye the Sailor” when he asks who’s the best.
He sends his giant bird, Rokh, to wreck Popeye’s boat and capture Olive. Popeye out-growls Sindbad’s lions. Popeye and Sindbad finally fight it out, spinach-style, and Popeye rescues Olive.
