YMMV / Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor

  • Award Snub: Some people feel that this short really got cheated out of the Academy Award, losing to a now obscure Silly Symphony The Country Cousin, despite the fact that years later it got entered into the National Film Registry AND is #17 on The 50 Greatest Cartoons list.
  • DVD Commentary: John Kricfalusi and his pals provide one for the first official Popeye DVD set. A second commentary, supplied by historians Jerry Beck, Ray Pointer, Bob Jacques and Leslie Cabarga, appears for it on the Warner Bros. Academy Awards Collection DVD set.
  • Narm: The roars of Sindbad's beasts might've sounded terrifying back in 1936, but not today. Let's just say whoever did them is no Frank Welker.
