Storyline

Popeye is sitting outside Olive's lunchroom at the airport, distraught. She's closed the business to fly away with an aviator (Bluto, of course). But it's hardly what she expected; he has her painting his plane, while it's flying; when she says she's rather go back to Popeye, he tries to throw her off the plane. Popeye sees this, and takes off in a plane, just in time to help her out. The boys get into a dogfight, and Bluto manages to demolish Popeye's plane. As Popeye is falling, he grabs a duck and feeds the duck spinach. The duck manages to fly him up to Bluto's plane, Popeye has some spinach of his own, and he teaches Bluto a lesson. Popeye picks up Olive and crashes the plane into the diner, opening it (and providing a new counter). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

This Is Why I Used To Love (and still do) Popeye Cartoons
23 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are shown the 'Hott-Air Airport" and down the road is Olive Oly's restaurant for fliers with the motto painted on the roof, "Come Down And See Me Sometime!"

Meanwhile, Popeye is crying, reading a letter from Olive saying, "Popeye, I am PLANE crazy about aviators. I'm flying away with one. Good-bye. Olive Oyl."

Well, this turns out to be one of the most amusing and entertaining Popeye cartoons I've seen. It's the kind of animated short I remember when I think fondly back on the great Popeye cartoons I saw as a kid. In a nutshell, we have Popeye and Bluto fighting in out in the sky - WWI "dogfight" style.

Popeye used two cans a spinach, giving one of them to a duck, to help save him and defeat his enemy. That's just one example of the many outrageous and totally insane scenes. . This is so good, the time seemed to "fly by" in about a minute. Great stuff!
