Earlier today we broke the report
about Warner Home Video's announcement of Popeye & Friends - Volume 1
, a single-disc release (costing $14.98 SRP). It is a title aimed at more casual fans of the spinach-eatin' sailor, as compared to the more "collectible," extras-filled releases represented by last year's Popeye the Sailor - Volume 1: 1933-1938 4-disc set
and the upcoming Popeye the Sailor - Volume 2: 1938-1940 2-disc set
Just a short time ago this afternoon, Warner released the package art for the newly announced Popeye & Friends - Volume 1
title, and we're first to you with it below! This release, like Popeye the Sailor - Volume 2: 1938-1940
, will be available starting on June 17th
. The wording on the box reveals that there will be a total of 8 cartoon shorts on this disc, but we still don't know yet which ones will be there. Stay tuned!
