In "Popeye Meets Sindbad (Bluto)," Popeye's perennial enemy almost outshines him. Bluto is in rare form, his rich, bass voice rendering with gusto a catchy tune. He is also charismatic as a comic relief. This cartoon gem, one of Popeye's best, comes in vibrant colors thanks to having been digitally revamped.

Popeye is Robin Hood; he's got a sidekick, Little John. Bluto is the tax collector, and Olive is the owner/barmaid at the local pub. Bluto comes to the pub to collect 100% taxes and falls for Olive, who he tries to impress with trick archery, but Popeye/Robin makes a fool of him. Since he can't win fair, he cheats, by serving Popeye a root beer spiked with "Ye Olde Michael Finn." With Popeye out cold, he dashes off with Olive, but Little John feeds Popeye his spinach, and Popeye races off to the castle, turning the armored knights into a cast-iron stove. Bluto carries Olive up a spiral staircase, but Popeye screws it into the ground, and they all ride off with Bluto acting as their beast of burden.

Popeye and Olive are at the premiere of Popeye's new movie. He gets a little too wrapped up in the movie, interacting with it at various points, and even handing the screen version of himself a can of spinach. The movie itself is the story of Aladdin, minus the songs and about half the footage of the short it's cut from.
Popeye's snoring is keeping his resident mouse awake. The mouse fights back. Popeye makes a mistake: he traps the mouse in a spinach can that isn't completely empty.

Capt. Jim's Popeye Club was a local Pittsburgh children's television series during the 1970s, which showed Popeye the Sailor Man cartoons. Captain Jim was played by Jim Martin, who is now a puppeteer for Sesame Street. The series was described as a "classic" in 2005, by Bob Karlovits of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Captain Jim was played by Ted Eckman, not Jim Martin. Jim Martin played the role of Bimbo the Clown, on the Captain Jim Show. Ted took the name Jim because the station preferred not to change the show's name, since the original Captain's name was Jim. Ted Eckman was playing the role of MAJOR TED at WKBN in Youngstown Ohio when he was asked to come to Pittsburgh to take over Captain Jim's Popeye Club. Captain Jim was originally played by Jim Saunders who was later replaced by Ted Eckman, who used the name "Jim" instead of "Ted" was because another person was using the "Captain Ted" name. The "Captain Jim" show is further asserted to have been broadcast from 1959 to about 1965 in an after-school time slot with Popeye cartoons, with this version of the show running for an hour. This broadcast ran on WIIC-TV, now WPXI.
