These drawings are so cool!
Hey Marc, did you hear about Fantagrahics reprinting Thimble Theater again? Segar's run in 6 over sized hardcovers for 30 bucks a piece! The Sundays will even be in color! You can pre-order it now on Amazon for September I think.Popeye is one of my favorites too, right up there with Daffy. These post its rock!
Hi Chris - you know I just found out about that exciting news! I read about it here on Mark Mayerson's blog. But I didn't know that it would be 6 over-sized hardcovers! Thanks for the info! I can hardly wait!Thanks for checking out the post-its, too - Popeye's the Greatest!
Your popeye postits are great! I have a habit of stealing people's postit drawings when they're not looking, so you'd better keep an eye on these...Oh yeah, I love the little cat and bird, too!
Do you guys have a favorite Popeye? I just purchased that dvd that Mark Mayerson talked about when he mentioned the new books and it rocks! The special features are completely worth it. Its got a tour insides Fleischer's. Little Swee Pea is my new favorite cartoon! "There's no ifs or maybes, I'll never have babies! I'm Popeye the Sailorman!"
Hi Katie - thanks! I would be flattered to have a post-it stolen!
Hi Chris,Yeah, that Popeye DVD from Thunderbean is great - especially with all the interviews and extras. I love all the Thunderbean DVD's! My favorite thing about "Lil Sweet Pea" are those incredible multi-plane/miniatures backgrounds - incredible! My favorite Popeye cartoons are the real early ones - the ones from 1933. The first Popeye cartoon, Popeye The Sailor (7/14/33), is actually a Betty Boop cartoon! It's great because it feels like a 30's Talkartoon - everyone is constantly bouncing to the musical beat, the crowds are made up of animals (and not just humans like in later Popeye's), and the animation is particularly cartoony. Some other Popeye cartoons from 1933 are:I Yam What I Yam (9/29/33)Blow Me Down (10/27/33)I Eats My Spinach (11/17/33)Wow, sorry for the long comment! Popeye is the best!
