Prepare for 17 newly presented adventures featuring our favorite spinach-eating sailor man and his lovely leading lady, Olive Oyl. This set finishes out Popeye’s second decade of screen stardom with cartoons originally released to movie theaters in 1948 and 1949. Providing more globe-trotting and time-traveling adventures, the cartoons have been restored to look their lavish best utilizing the techniques of three classic color systems.
The Polacolor process was a short-lived 3-strip technique designed to be an alternative to Technicolor®. The studio gave it a try on a group of cartoons produced during this period, and the results are particularly striking – with fresh restorations that now show their proper, vibrant hues.
In these cartoons, Popeye and Olive travel back to prehistoric times, ancient Greece and the Sherwood Forest. They visit Plymouth Rock and the Old West, then battle assorted baddies in the Egyptian desert, the freezing Arctic and the Ozarks. Of course, Bluto is back as Popeye’s number-one nemesis, tackling the sailor man as a rival lumberjack, a fanatic flying ace and a lecherous vaudeville hypnotist.
But that’s not all. Popeye also has his fists full with a pair of pet dogs, irritating houseflies and a quartet of spinach-hating, sound-alike nephews. He ultimately meets his match when Olive decides to throw her hat in the ring and makes a run for U.S. president!
Hilarious sight gags, gorgeous cartoon art and more action-packed goodness from the golden age of animation: Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s, Volume 3 will leave you rooting – and toot-tooting – for more!

Collection includes:
Olive Oyl for President
Wigwam Whoopee
Pre-Hysterical Man
Popeye Meets Hercules
A Wolf in Sheik's Clothing

Oh, wait a minute, I found a source which actually does say it's coming out next month: Warner Archive's official Twitter , which also announced the set today.

WAC release announcements are usually for the next month. Jetsons was an exception, and maybe Popeye could be October, but the thats the general rule.

I'm very happy with this news, but I'm starting to take it that WAC will never put out a WB or MGM cartoon blu ray

Popeye IS September, as seen in the WAC Twitter post I quoted above. 😉 That's good to know though, wasn't aware that they generally posted the announcements a month before release.

Hey, never say never! Just remember, it wasn't long ago that we were speculating that the color Popeyes weren't gonna be released either, let alone in such pristine condition.

Be optimistic, man! If we keep buying these sets, they'll give us more of what we want.

I'll say never until I'm given a reason to think otherwise. The supposed "all good, all exciting" releases that were supposed to be revealed at Comic-Con were never announced and the story on further releases keeps changing every Stu's Show.

Then again, you have to remember that Warner Archive can't release the heavy hitters like Bugs or Tom and Jerry due to those properties belonging to the family division of Warner Home Entertainment. In terms of golden age animation, I believe they are rather limited to mostly obscure shorts that won't sell well (MGM one shots collection anyone?) or properties that they don't 100% own, like Popeye.

Though I don't know if the Tex Avery's belong to the family division.....
Nyahh, It's a possibility..

I'm gonna guess that Spinach vs. Hamburgers is the first Technicolor Popeye cartoon to have the red-and-blue Paramount logo with the clouds in the background, since it was first used on the Polacolor cartoons a few months back with Pre-Hysterical Man.

And also, from the first page of the Volume 2 thread, it appears my prediction of what will be on Volume 3 was correct.

Tom and Jerry, yes, but I'd say they'd probably be able to release some of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies characters' shorts in HD, especially the ones that don't have main characters.

There's definitely nothing to stop them releasing Porky Pig shorts in HD I wouldn't think.

I suspect the next Stu's Show will have yet another tease of "stuff" that's very exciting but can't be talked about, plus confirmation of the first Popeye 1950's volume.

Keep in mind that Jerry got in trouble with Universal when he announced the release of "Woody Woodpecker and His Friends Volume 1" prematurely as a guest in a podcast. I also believed he got in similar trouble with Warners when he also mentioned the first Fleischer Popeye set on said podcast. I think for legal reasons is why he can't say what is coming out of the pipeline just yet. So again, please be patient.

As with the first two volumes, Stephen DeStefano has posted his cover artwork...

So you even get a sneak peak at what some of the back cover art will look like too!

I like his version of the Famous Studios "Popeye head in the star" logo.

There isn't one as of now. I have no idea if that means there's no DVD version this time around, or if they haven't gotten it posted yet.

For the first two volumes, I ordered the Blu-ray AND the DVD, but since there's no link for a DVD version this time, I just went for the BLU.

I pre-ordered the Jetsons as well, even though they come out a week apart. I've never done that with the WB Shop before, but I have to assume they'll hold the order until the second item releases on the 17th.
