Facts about

This film had some of its scenes shot in Tabletop. This was a process that combined 2D and 3D animation - miniature sets were built on a stage, then the characters were then animated and superimposed over this background, so that various objects could pass in front/behind them. This created an impression of depth and quality to the viewer.
This was the first of the "Popeye Color Specials", a trilogy of Technicolor features that were released in the 1930s. These features were over sixteen minutes each (three times as long as a regular Popeye cartoon, and so were considered big-budget adaptations), and were often billed in cinemas alongside/above the main feature.
In 1994, this film was ranked at #17 on the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time.
