Popeye the Sailor: 1933-1938
And while we're on the topic, Cartoon Brew has posted some stills of the upcoming Popeye DVD and they look AMAZING! The restoration is remarkable! Check out the stills here and here.

Jerry also tells us that this set is going to be loaded down with special features including individual featurettes on all the characters, spotlights on music, influence on pop culture,
Thimble Theater featurette, audio commentaries, pop-up commentaries, and a bunch of Ko-Ko the Clown cartoons!

Wow! This may be the best DVD set ever!

The above picture is a still from the Popeye set and the below picture is a still that I pulled off of one of the public domain DVDs that I have. This should give you an example of the restoration that was put into this set.
