Popeye Vol. 2 Bonus Materials

popeyeboxv2.jpgLast week Warner Home Video announced the release date (June 17th) of Popeye Vol. 2.

One of the bonus materials mentioned on the official sales sheet was the 1939 Max Fleischer feature film, Gulliver’s Travels — and this has confused many people (at least according to email I recieved). I’ve just received the actual, final list of bonus materials to be included on this set and Gulliver has been dropped. (I have no idea where they would’ve gotten the print from, or how it would’ve fit on the crammed two disc set). No need to fret, however, over the loss of an oft-seen widely available animated feature. The bonus goodies included in this package are even more exciting — particularly several rare items unavailable anywhere else.

Here then, is the full and accurate list of extra content on Popeye the Sailor Vol. 2:
