This cartoon makes use of Fleischer's Tabletop process, which animates the cels vertically between multi-plane set pieces in order to create the feeling of depth. Used here for the city streets. The whole effect is lost in the color version, as the backgrounds is a flat redraw. See more »

Popeye, unable to cook for himself, decides it's time to get married so he goes to a marriage agency and picks out Olive Oyl but Bluto is also there and also has his eyes set on the skinny one. This is a pretty good entry in the series thanks to a very funny opening where we see Popeye trying to cook. The fights between Popeye and Bluto aren't the best we've seen but they have enough charm to make them work. Wimpy plays the Justice of Peace.
On DVD from Warner.
