"Merry Christmas, Everybody" - Superman's Christmas Adventure #1

Historical note: One week after this issue’s release, Fleischer Studios revised the world of Superman with “She-Sick Sailors,” the second Popeye short that in three years paying homage to the Man of Steel.

Written by Bill Turner and Otto Messmer and running about 7 minute, the short finds Bluto impersonating Superman in hopes of winning the love of Olive Oyl and necessitating Popeye to eat his spinach and save the day!
