Our first episode will give you a taste of what to expect as we dive into an in-depth discussion about the cartoons featured on Warner Archive's summer release, Popeye the Sailor: The 1940s, Volume 2. Learn all about the Famous Studios crew, particularly Disney Legend Bill Tytla and New York heavyweights Jim Tyer and John Gentilella, that brought these often maligned cartoons to life, and just why these little Blu-Ray collections are worth celebrating.

Every episode we'll also dissect one cartoon in detail, and we decided for our first episode to pick perhaps the most... famous of Famous Popeyes, Rocket to Mars. Strap yourselves in, because this trip is really necessary.
