Popeye takes Olive to a stage show of a hypnotist (Bluto), who also levitates objects. While he's doing this, Popeye makes him lose his concentration, so in retaliation, the hypnotist pulls Olive on stage and turns her into a chicken. Popeye comes down to fight and the hypnotist tries to turn him into a monkey, but Popeye pulls a mirror into place. He recovers, and turns Popeye into a donkey, then smacks him around a bit, but spinach comes to the rescue. Written by

I think hypnotism cartoons are funny to watch, because of this Popeye short and the 1945 Donald Duck short The Eyes Have It. This is my 3rd favorite Seymour Kneitel & Roland Crandall collaborated Popeye short; however William Henning animated this short (uncredited), I don't know which scenes. And I think, but I am not sure that this short is also the first appearance of Gus Wickie as Bluto.
In this short, Popeye takes Olive to a stage show of Bluto the great hypnotist, who also levitates objects. While he's doing this, Popeye makes him lose his concentration, levitating a drum from the orchestra pit, by 'tooting' on his pipe, and the drum lands on Bluto's head. So in retaliation, Bluto pulls Olive on stage and turns her into a chicken. When Popeye has enough, he jumps on stage and the cartoon really gets wild after that with both guys making total fools of the other....and the packed audience loving every minute. I 'd like it when Popeye paces in exasperation, and tooting on his pipe. And seeing Olive as a chicken increases his pacing speed; then "That's all I can stand 'cause I can't stands no more!" I also love this quote: "ABBA DABBA!" "Abba Dabba yourself!"
So my last word is that it is another humorous Popeye shot, and I thought The animation is very nice throughout.
