Notesedit

All cartoons are one-reel 6 to 10 minutes and in black and white, except for the three Popeye Color Specials Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor from 1936, Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves from 1937, and Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp from 1939, which are two-reels 20 minutes long and in Technicolor

The first 8 cartoons used the "Out of the Inkwell" logo

Dave Fleischer was the credited director on every cartoon produced by Fleischer Studios Fleischer's actual duties were those of a film producer and creative supervisor, with the head animators doing much of the work assigned to animation directors in other studios The head animator is the first animator listed1 Credited animators are therefore listed for each short

The black-and-white Popeye cartoons were sold to television distributor Associated Artists Productions aap in 1956, and the three Popeye Color Specials were sold to aap the following year The original opening and closing Paramount titles were cut for TV syndication By the early 2000s, the Popeye shorts were owned by Turner Entertainment Co, whose Cartoon Network broadcast restored versions of many of the shorts as part of an anthology series called The Popeye Show
