Some flashes (heh) from the past

There is a box set of old Popeye cartoons that I just picked up. They look amazing. I do like the disclaimer that appears at the beginning of each disc

"The animated shorts you are about to see are a product of their time. They may depict some of the ethnic, sexist and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following shorts do not represent the Warner Bros. view of today's society, these animated shorts are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed."

And ... SciFi is starting a new Flash Gordon series on Friday. I'll toss them onto disc and see ... but I rarely have hope for such things. Oddly enough, I was out looking for the late 70s Flash Gordon cartoon series (pointed out to me by eeknight) when I found the Popeye set, which, like so much, I had forgotten about.
