Popeye the Submarine Voyage Sailing Man

When I was working on the two scans today, the Popeye theme song just kept going through my mind. I think it is due to the sailor outfit (with bell bottoms) in the second image. These are from a series of slides from 1968.

Looks like this guy is working the ride all by himself. ??

I bought the first set of "Popeye" classic cartoons (love the Fleischer version!), and they are great, but I eventually couldn't take the theme song and skipped it every time!

These pictures capture the "you are there" excitement of embarking on Walt Disney's Submarine Voyage.

Crossing the gangplank, the tight turning staircase, the funny smelling air coming thru the porthole snorkel; it was all wonderful ... and the sub hadn't even left the dock left yet.
