Popeye the Sailor Volume 3 Description from WHV:
He may be rough and rugged, but unlikely hero Popeye the Sailor still garners countless fans nearly 80 years after his television debut. This unpretentious underdog makes his way back into the hearts of Popeye enthusiasts as Warner Home Video (WHV), Hearst Entertainment and King Features Syndicate release Popeye The Sailor 1941-1943 Volume 3.

Popeye the Sailor was one of the most endearing and successful characters in animation history with a unique way of speaking, muscular forearms and ever-present corncob pipe. His strange, humorous and often supernatural adventures take him all over the world and place him in conflict with enemies such as the Sea Hag and Bluto.

Popeye The Sailor 1941-1943 Volume 3 includes 32 (7-10 min.) original re-mastered and unedited theatrical black & white shorts on a 2-disc DVD collectable set. We find loveable Popeye is always ' strong to the finish, 'cause he eats all his spinach!' when protecting his sweetie Olive Oyl, from Bluto, the local goon. This volume is an authorized edition from the original masters and includes loads of interviews and never-before-seen special features.

Comments from The Patriot Resource:
Popeye the Sailor dates back more than seventy years to the early days of animation. Popeye the Sailor managed to be a hero even as he was rough-edged and very much a common man. Popeye was very much a moralist, but also suffers from the common prejudices of that time which have not been sanitized or omitted for this release. Even though this third volume doesn't have quite the number of extras that the previous two volumes had, there is a still a generous dose of extras. Between the complete and unedited compilation of shorts and the nice collection of extras, this fully authorized volume is well worth being a part of any fan of this classic cartoon.
