Popeye the Sailor in Goonland

Fleischer Studios (1938)

Goonland is Popeye’s 65th cartoon, released on October 21, 1938 by Fleischer Studios. It features Jack Mercer as both Popeye and Poopdeck Pappy, in the latter’s screen debut. It also contains the only theatrical appearance of the Goons who act as the short’s main antagonists.


  1. So entertaining. It’s the small details that make these so much fun to watch. The part at the end where they dump the Goons off of the film then hold it together with a safety pin is great. So the Goons were in the cartoons but only in 1 theatrical release? I remember Alice the Goon but this short is a new one. Popeye is a chip off the old block.

What's on your mind?
