Here it comes!

The first official release of the classic Max Fleischer cartoons on DVD, from Warner Home Video (who own the master film elements) by arrangement with King Features Syndicate. The first sixty Fleischer cartoons (in release order), including POPEYE THE SAILOR MEETS SINDBAD THE SAILOR and POPEYE THE SAILOR MEETS ALI BABA’S FORTY THEIVES, all restored from the original negatives. All Paramount titles restored.

This is the real thing. If you love these cartoons your eyes will POP at the restorations. If you’ve never seen them you are in for a revelation. Four discs, over five hours worth of bonus materials, including audio commentaries by the likes of Mark Kausler, John K., Eric Goldberg, Leslie Cabarga, Mark Evanier, etc. (yes, and me too!). This is Vol. 1 and it goes on sale July 31st. Mark your calender now.
