The Football Toucher Downer (1937)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Popeye is babysitting and trying to get the kid to eat spinach but he refuses. Popeye then tells the story of when he was a little kid playing against Bluto in a football match.

Fans of the series will certainly find a lot of entertainment in this short, which is another classic. There are a lot of creative bits here including the various football plays done by Bluto and his team. There's some really creative and funny stuff being performed here including a human tower. As you'd expect from the series, the animation itself is extremely good and the attention to details are as incredible as always. If you're looking for a fast short with great action then look no further.
