Early Popeye short, 18 August 2002

This is an early Popeye short, if i'm not mistaken, the first official Popeye cartoon (his first appearance was in a Betty Boop with the title, "Popeye the Sailor") and the seams show a bit here. The basic concepts are started here and it's an enjoyable cartoon, but nothing special. Worth watching. Recommended.
