Starting To Become More Clever
5 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They have some pretty decent sight gags in here, especially the beginning when Popeye and Olive are in their ocean raft sailing toward an island. How he makes the raft go, and provide sardines, is pretty good

Once the two get to the island, it's "Wild Kingdom" as all kinds of animals appear and none of them friendly. Can Popeye fight off an elephant (and numerous other beasts) and at the same time rescue Olive from a King Kong-type ape? That's the storyline.

Overall, this was very good and you can see the gags are getting a little more clever as this cartoon evolves. One thing that was different in this one was Olive feeding Popeye his spinach at the end. This was the sixth theatrical release.
