Sinbad Jr. and his Magic Belt, also known as Sinbad Jr., is an animated American television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. Airing in syndication, it ran from 1965 to 1966, airing 35 episodes that spanned one season.

Sinbad Jr., alongside his companion Salty, sail the seas across the globe, but more often than not, they would run into a do-badder with malicious intentions, and when the time comes, Sinbad pulls his "magic belt" real tight, which makes him with intense strength, putting the badguy into a real pickle.

The show's partially lost, due to this, only a handful of episodes still exist.

Later episodes would feature regular villains such as Blubbo, Rotcodam and Goots.

The series was owned by MGM's subsidiary Orion Pictures, but the rights for the series were later acquired by Warner Bros.



Sinbad was to be voiced by Dal McKennon, but with American International Pictures having released the film, The Magic Voyage of Sinbad, and having held the rights to any Sinbad trademark for screen works during the time, their television company had eventually came into an agreement to of which the series would be produced under Hanna-Barbera for syndication television run, and Tim Matheson would replace McKennon as the star role.


The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin.
