Did You Know?


This cartoon makes use of Fleischer's Tabletop process, which animates the cels vertically between multi-plane set pieces in order to create the feeling of depth. Used here for the interior of Bluto's apartment building. The whole effect is lost in the color version, as the backgrounds is a flat redraw. See more »

Learn Polikeness (1938)

*** (out of 4)

Olive Oyl wants Popeye to be a proper gentleman so she makes him go to Bluteau's Etiquette School where things start off bad and continue to a fight.

This here is another nice entry into the long-running Popeye series and while this one here doesn't quite reach the "classic" statue it's at least entertaining enough. Once again we're treated to some wonderful animation and so many great details that aren't normally in these animated films. There are some funny moments scattered throughout but the majority of the laughs happen as we see the rather sloppy Popeye trying to be a gentleman and obviously it just doesn't work. The muttering Popeye does is quite funny throughout.
