Crack open a can of spinach an get ready for some animated fun.

Today's giveaway prize is 'Popeye the Sailor - Vol 2 - 1938-1930'!

He's one of the first comic strip characters to make the transition to film. Created in 1929 as part of the King Features comic strip Thimble Theater, Popeye was transformed into an animated cartoon just a few years later.

Everyone's favorite sailorman hasn't aged a day since his Silver Screen debut over 75 years ago, showing the true power of eating your spinach. Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Bluto are back to entertain fans in 2008 when Warner Home Video (WHV), Hearst Entertainment and King Features Syndicate get set to release 'Popeye The Sailor 1938-1940 Volume 2' on June 17, 2008.  The 2-disc Authorized Edition 1938-1940 DVD collection includes 31 original re-mastered and unedited theatrical shorts created by the legendary Max Fleischer.

Popeye, infamous for his "muskles," spinach and pipe, was introduced to American audiences and became one of the most beloved characters in animation history.  Because of his distinctive jargon and memorable catch phrases such as, "Thas' all I can stands, 'cause I can't stands no more," Popeye became a household name.  A humble hero, Popeye was always true to his uncompromising moral standards and although he looked like a tough guy, he only resorted to force when faced with a conflict that affected his loved ones.  Even when close to defeat by the evil Bluto, Popeye's obsession with spinach guaranteed him victory over his competition.  Unassumingly, Popeye was also a hopeless romantic, faking illness to get Olive Oyl's attention, as seen in the short, "I Yam Love Sick."   

'Popeye The Sailor 1938-1940 Volume 2' comes with more than three hours of cartoons – 31 (7- to 10-minute) theatrical black-and-white shorts and one two-reeler 20-minute color cartoon – all in one amazing collectible package.  Included on the 2-disc DVD are two of the most memorable Popeye shorts, featuring the re-mastered "I Yam Love Sick!" and "With Poopdeck Pappy." Popeye Volume 2 also consists of more than three hours of incredible bonus features, including:

The DVD arrives in stores June 17th but Comics2Film has one last copy of 'Popeye the Sailor - Vol 2 - 1938-1930' to give to you right now, matey!
