Storyline

Olive preaches the need for brotherly love on the radio. Popeye, hearing this, does a number of good deeds: helping two workmen raise a safe, straightening a wrecked car, and helping two boys sneak into a baseball game. But when he tries to break up a fight, it's more than he can handle alone. Olive and her followers come along and try to help, but it's too much for them, too. Of course, once Popeye has his spinach... Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Brotherly love, as only Popeye could teach it, in all his glory.
1 January 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Somehow, I doubt that Gandhi would recognize the conclusion of this short as a good example of brotherly love! A very funny cartoon, well executed and true to the character's nature. Olive is in her typically "fine" voice, as is Popeye, in the singing of the title song. Very good cartoon, if a tad obvious in spots. Well worth watching. Recommended.
