S01:E01 - Popeye Meets Ali Baba

Popeye: Restored Richard Flescher Short Films

Season 1 Episode 1 - Popeye Meets Ali Baba

1937 · 16 min
This short features Olive as a screenwriter for Surprise Pictures ("if it's a good picture, it's a Surprise" – the same joke idea had been used in 1938's Daffy Duck in Hollywood), working on a treatment of the story of Aladdin that will feature herself as the beautiful princess and Popeye as Aladdin, all the while speaking in rhyme. As she types, her adaptation of Aladdin comes to life on the screen, with Popeye having to use his wits against an evil vizier who seeks to control a magic lamp inhabited by a powerful genie. After completing the script, Olive gets a termination of employment notice from the front office, which reads "Your story of Aladdin is being thrown out...and so are you! [signed] Surprise."
