Storyline

Popeye, Olive (rowing), and Wimpy (eating) arrive in America by rowboat. Popeye builds a log cabin (by punching some trees) and sets off to gather some ducks. He fights a few indians along the way, but they pose no real threat. But meanwhile, back at the cabin, the indians have been sneaking up and have Olive and Wimpy under siege. Wimpy soon runs away, and runs into Popeye and the ducks he has collected, while Olive has been single-handedly fighting off an endless stream of indians. Popeye eats his spinach and makes short work of the remainder of the tribe, turning the leader into 'Mahatma Gandhi'. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

2 Popeye shorts

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.

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.
