"Here you'll find spindly Olive Oyl, burger opportunist Wimpy, lil' Swee'pea, brooding Bluto -- even a pair of rare, full-color, two reel extravaganzas that received top billing in some movie houses. And you'll find Popeye is in all his muttering, spinach-chomping, Bluto-bashing, crowd-pleasing greatness." -- Container
