Classic Popeye Cartoon
2 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is my favorite Popeye cartoon. Made on the 1930's, it captures the humor and style of its time. In my opinion, the cartoon is sarcastic at the highest degree. In those days, Europe was at the dawn of the Second World War, and "brotherly love" was spoken of but never really practiced. The music is very good too. Watching today's cartoons, I get a bit disappointed at the lack of simplicity of the material watched by our children. Perhaps Popeye is not as influential upon children today as it was in my childhood, and this is a pity, because he is a unique character - I ate spinach mainly because of him. Many people say that Popeye is politically incorrect, because he smokes and uses violence to solve problems, and also because spinach is not so good to health as we used to think. But ... does this really matter? The cartoon is funny, interesting and sticks to our memory. So "all we need is brotherly love".
