Blow Me Down! (1933)

**** (out of 4)

Popeye travels to Mexico to see Olive Oyl who's working in a Mexican bar when Bluto shows up to start trouble. Once again we get some great humor with a lot of in coming in the politically incorrect form. The scene where a Mexican bandit shoots Popeye in the head only to have to bullet fly back and hit him is great as is the scene where Popeye and Bluto have a shooting contest.

I Yam What I Yam (1933)

**** (out of 4)

Second film in the series has Popeye, Olive Oyl and Wimpy landing on an island when they're attacked by Indians. There are several funny moments here including a great scene where Popeye goes duck hunting and the Indian coins is another great gag. The spoof of Ghandi also works quite nicely in this politically incorrect short.
