Animated Popeye plot lines tend to be simple. A villain, usually Bluto, makes a move on Popeye's "sweetie," Olive Oyl. The bad guy then clobbers Popeye until Popeye eats spinach, which gives him superhuman strength. The fundamental character of Popeye, paralleling that of another 1930's icon, Superman, also invokes traditional values possessing uncompromising moral standards and resorting to force only when threatened, or when he "can't stands no more"!
This two-disc set contains 31 Popeye cartoons produced between 1938 and 1940.
