My Artisical Temperature (1937)

*** (out of 4)

Bluto and Popeye are artists and Olive Oyl walks in requesting for a statue to be made of her figure. She agrees to go with whoever makes the best portrait and sure enough it leads to a fight.

MY ARTISICAL TEMPERATURE isn't the greatest Popeye short ever created but it's got enough fast action and violence to make it entertaining. Obviously the highlights come as Bluto and Popeye beat the fire out of one another, which of course leads to the spinach. Once again the animation itself is grand and there's a certain flow that all of these Popeye shorts had. The short isn't a masterpiece but it's certainly entertaining.
