Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s is intended for the Adult Collector and May Not Be Suitable for Children.
The 1940s brought new sights and sounds to America’s favorite cartoon star. With the addition of full color, cartoonists were now free to let loose with journeys to exotic lands and give Popeye a fresh stock of new friends and foes.
Some of the cartoons included in this collection are a product of their time. They may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American Society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros.’ view of today’s society, some of these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these never existed
