Sinbad Jr. and his Magic Belt is a series of 5-minute cartoons which originally aired in first-run syndication between 1965-1966, produced by Hanna-Barbera for the American International Television division of American International Pictures and were shown during a half-hour cartoon. This was the first series produced by Hanna-Barbera that was not distributed by Screen Gems, the television studio that released much of Hanna-Barbera's output prior to this time. Sinbad Jr., the Sailor was originally titled The Adventures of Sinbad, Jr. and produced for American International Television by Sam Singer.

In an effort to improve the quality of the animation, production of the 1965 syndicated cartoons was taken over by Hanna-Barbera. It was renamed Sinbad Jr., the Sailor out of deference to the 1962 Toei Studios feature-length cartoon, Adventures of Sinbad. The rights to the series are now owned by AIP successor Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the studio where William Hanna and Joseph Barbera got their start.

PlotEdit

Sinbad Jr. (voiced by Tim Matheson) is the son of Sinbad, the famous sea explorer. He becomes superhuman getting his power from his magic belt. His first mate is the funny and loyal assistant Salty the Parrot (voiced by Mel Blanc).

Theme musicEdit

The cartoon's theme song, composed by Ted Nichols, is a variation on the children's song "Sailing, Sailing (Over the Bounding Main)" that was written in 1880 by Godfrey Marks, a pseudonym of British organist and composer James Frederick Swift (1847–1931).[1][2][3] A later version of the theme song has a jazzier beat.[4]

Each 30-minute episode consists of three 5-minute cartoons.
