Popeye the Sailor filmography (Fleischer Studios)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of the 109 cartoons starring Popeye the Sailor, produced from 1933 to 1942 by Fleischer Studios for Paramount Pictures.[1]

During the course of production in 1941, Paramount assumed control of the Fleischer studio, removing founders Max and Dave Fleischer from control of the studio and renaming the organization Famous Studios by 1942. Popeye cartoons continued production under Famous Studios following 1942's Baby Wants a Bottleship (see Filmography of Popeye the Sailor by Famous Studios).

Notes

All cartoons are one-reel (6 to 10 minutes) and in black and white, except for the three Popeye Color Specials (Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor from 1936, Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves from 1937, and Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp from 1939), which are two-reels (20 minutes) long and in Technicolor.

The first eight cartoons used the "Out of the Inkwell" logo.

Dave Fleischer was the credited director on every cartoon produced by Fleischer Studios. Fleischer's actual duties were those of a film producer and creative supervisor, with the head animators doing much of the work assigned to animation directors in other studios. The head animator is the first animator listed.[2] Credited animators are therefore listed for each short.

The black-and-white Popeye cartoons were sold to television distributor Associated Artists Productions (a.a.p.) in 1956, and the three Popeye Color Specials were sold to a.a.p. the following year. The original opening and closing Paramount titles were cut for TV syndication. By the early 2000s, the Popeye shorts were owned by Turner Entertainment Co., whose Cartoon Network broadcast restored versions of many of the shorts as part of an anthology series called The Popeye Show.

This film was made for theaters that participated in Paramount's weekly Popeye Fan Club meetings.

Official DVD releases

All of the Fleischer Popeye cartoons have been released through Warner Home Video's Popeye the Sailor DVD box set series across the following releases:
