Popeye Meets More Hostiles, 3 September 2007
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

Boy, people are hostile wherever Popeye least in these first few cartoons. In his second cartoon, the one before this, Indians attacked he and Olive when he landed in America. Now, Popeye rows down to Mexico and the locals are taking gunshots at him when he walks down the street.

He finds Olive doing some wild dance in a saloon and we get a few sight gags with that, when suddenly a huge Bluto - bigger than how he looked later in Popeye cartoons - comes in with guns blazing! He's "Bluto The Bandit" according to the big reward sign posted on him at the bar.

The rest is just a sock 'em affair with Bluto and Olive and then Bluto and Popeye, nothing special but enough sight gags to make it worth watching.
