New Feature time: Popeye the Sailor

Welp, regular features are what keep people coming back, so I'm going to dip my toes into another one.  I've actually got all the Popeye DVDs I think I'd care to own, all due respect to the bastardized Gene Deitch shorts and all.  Still, some freeloading so and so's uploaded them all to YouTube, so I guess I'll just stick with that for educational purposes. 
Yes, time to go through all the Max Fleischer cartoons, as many as possible.  They've got energy, ingenuity, and creativity, and are not guarded as viciously by lawyers and marketing.  They made me want to be an animator... but I guess not that much, seeing as how I'm doing this instead.  But let's dive right in to the first one here!
