Mae Questel was a pretty good singer. The woman who voiced Olive Oyl for decades also did Betty Boop, so you know she can sing, even if you voice is a little strange and she has that big New York City accent.
Mae, er "Olive," sounds great in the opening of this cartoon where she's singing behind the counter of a diner while Popeye and Bluto sit there love-struck as she sings "I Want A Clean Shaven Man." The lyrics to this song are pretty funny, too. The lyrics to a lot of songs in the '30s were "cute" and "snappy," as they used to say.
Anyway, it's enough to inspire these two guys to race out of the dinner and race down to "Wimpy''s Barber Shop" to get clean shaven and go back and impressive Olive. The barber shop sight gags are fun to watch, as is the cartoon....and fun to hear.
