So there’s an official Popeye YouTube channel. I’ve only just heard of it so I did a quick check. It’s mostly shorts from CBS’s All-New Popeye with the occasional classic short and an artcast feature called “Animinute”. (No sign of Popeye & Son and only a couple of classic shorts. No Sindbad The Sailor unfortunately. Now they’re planning to create brand new Popeye cartoons. Will they be any good, and will they be original or match one of the various theatrical shorts (either Fleischer or…was it UPA?). Personally I’d like to see Genndy Tartakovsky finally get his shot at the character. Maybe they can make that happen?
