Floyd Buckley, the voice of Popeye for its radio program, played Popeye in this episode only. This was likely due to the firing of Billy Costello (Popeye's original voice) in 1935 and Fleischer Studio not yet deciding on Jack Mercer as his replacement. See more »

Popeye and Olive Oyl are in the park feeding birds when they witness Bluto beating up on his over worked horse. This here is another high mark for the series, although I'm sure PETA members would throw a fit about the abuse the horse takes here even though the film is animated. There are plenty of laughs throughout the film including a terrific sequence where Olive is feeding birds with her feet. There's plenty of action as well as we see Bluto beating the horse before finally getting the tables turned. One strange thing I noticed here is that the voice of Popeye was a lot different than in previous shorts and I didn't care for the change too much.
