First, I am extremely happy that SOMEONE is interested in putting out new Popeye, since WB and King Features can't agree to put out the Fleischer Popeyes on DVD for Popeye's 75th Anniversary, this is the next best thing.
The animation is great, and is really, in some bizzare way, similar to the Fleischer cartoons' animation (if only Popeye's mouth didn't move when he muttered). The only character that looked wrong was Bluto, who has his eyes open, which is something that rarely happens in the Fleischers.
Popeye the Sailor himself is wonderfully animated and his voice is good (it's best when Popeye starts talking under his breath). The voice isn't perfect, but we'll have to take what we can get.
Olive Oyl's voice is all wrong. It's a good voice, but not for Olive. She acts and looks right, though.
Everything about Swee Pea is the same as the original, it's too bad Swee Pea is the character they could easily decide not to use, if they needed one less character.
Bluto's voice is wonderful, but Popeye and Bluto are friends. It's not as bad as it sounds, though. They don't really ACT like friends (Popeye says they are friends in it, but they argue through the entire show). Contrary to something another reviewer said, Popeye and Bluto DO fight a little, at the beginning (you don't see it because they're inside a ball of smoke). If Bluto had been a little less supportive of Popeye and Popeye had not said they were friends, it would have been OK.
Wimpy was great. Just like Wimpy.
Poopdeck Pappy was great also, his voice was much closer to the original than Popeye's.
The Sea Hag, the voice is very bland, but the sea hag remains kind of creepy.
Just a few mistakes, but doesn't EVERY movie have mistakes?
P.S.: They say there are four classic cartoons on the bonus features section. There are four cartoons, but 'classic' is debatable. If only Warner Brothers and King Features could agree to put Goonland, Popeye the Sailor meets Sinbad the Sailor, The Adventures of Popeye and Shiver Me Timbers on this set, that would have been a more appropriate four.
