Maybe the best Popeye cartoon, 19 June 2001
Author: angelynx-2 from Washington DC, USA

...if, like me, you're not a fan of the two-fisted sailor, this is the Popeye cartoon for you. A charming, beautifully paced and timed, low-key adventure in which a sleeping Olive Oyl serenely paces the precarious rails of an under-construction skyscraper, blissfully oblivious to the fact that Popeye and Bluto are battling each other to a standstill for the right to be the one who saves her. Olive never misses a beat of her song (the classic "[Did You Ever See] A Dream Walking") despite stepping into and out of the most harrowing close calls, and makes it home and back to bed safely all by herself despite her would-be rescuers' noisy efforts. Just a delightful cartoon. (Don't miss the moment in which Popeye and Bluto, temporarily knocked dizzy, join her in sleepwalking and they negotiate a three-way intersection with split-second timing.)
