Popeye the SailorBTSW is an animated series based on the comic strip with the same name. While the Fleischer Studios cartoons as well as some of the early Famous Studios cartoons from the 1940's were well received by critics and animation fans alike, the same can’t be said about Famous Studios' later Popeye cartoons from 1949 to 1957.
Some of the cartoons also reuse footage from Fleischer Studios' earlier cartoons and have the voice actors redub over the footage of those cartoons such as Popeye Makes a Movie reuses footage from Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves and Big Bad Sindbad reuses footage from Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor.
A majority of the cartoons from this era are color remakes of far better and funnier earlier Popeye cartoons like The Fly's Last Flight being a color remake of Flies Ain’t Human, Popeye's Pappy being a color remake of Goonland, Baby Wants Spinach being a color remake of With Little Swee'Pea, Riot in Rhythm being a color remake of Me Musical Nephews, and so fourth.
This era celebrated Popeye's anniversary way too late with the cartoon Popeye's 20th Anniversary which was released in 1954 rather than 1953 when Popeye was adapted into animation in 1933.
Also, if they’re going to celebrate Popeye's anniversary in 1954, they should’ve called it Popeye's 25th Anniversary since Popeye was created in 1929.
While the voice acting can be good at times, it can get on your nerves once in a while, such as Olive's voice and Popeye's nephews' voices.
Very slow pacing and timing for the cartoons.
Some of the jokes aren’t really that funny.
Some characters from the original Fleischer cartoons returned during this era such as Pappy, Wimpy, and Swee' Pea.
Some good/decent cartoons like Popeye the Ace of Space, Pilgrim Popeye, Lunch with a Punch, and Baby Wants a Battle.
The animation from the earlier cartoons during this era is passable.
Decent voice acting and music.
The Italian dub is decent and is better than original version.
