Did You Know?


This cartoon makes use of Fleischer's Tabletop process, which animates the cells vertically between set pieces, in this case a model of the city street, in order to create the feeling of depth. The whole effect is lost in the color version, as the backgrounds is a flat redraw. See more »


Popeye: I've comes to take ya to the zoo to see the aminals.
Olive Oyl: I'm too busy, Popeye.
Popeye: [Under his breath] Oh, your loss.

Who is Swee Pea's parents??
20 January 2005 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

I never did understand in what relation was this baby to Popeye. Was he (it is a boy, is it not?), Olive Oyl's illegitimate kid? She seemed to hang around the docks a lot, she dated both Bluto and Popeye, heck, she could have dated (wink, wink) the whole 7th fleet for all we know!! But, I digress. This cartoon is a cute one about Popeye taking Swee Pea to the zoo. Swee Pea decides to climb out of his stroller and get inside various animal cages. Swee Pea gets inside the elephant, alligator, hippo cages and is seen riding the leopard out of the zoo before being caught by Popeye and delivered back to Olive Oyl.

But, this is a funny little cartoon from the Fleischer Studios.
