Wildest Last-Second Antics Ever, And Beautifully Drawn
3 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The begins with a very nicely-drawn shot of a harbor near a big city with automobiles being loaded onto big ferry boat ("Bluto's Ferry). The art on these 1930s black-and-white cartoons was outstanding times and sometimes overlooked because of Popeye's popularity as a personality.

This also is one of those Popeye episodes where our hero does not know Bluto, and vice- versa. He's just some big bully, as usual, that Popeye has to deal with sooner or later. He winds up having to deal with him on top of a half-built bridge. (Only in cartoons can a couple of people build a huge bridge within days or minutes!. Here Olive feeds Wimpy a hamburger and he sends up a rivet and Popeye stamps it into a girder.

The ending of this cartoon provides what has to be the greatest feat Popeye has ever accomplished in a few seconds. You have to see it to believe it and it made me just laugh out loud.
