Popeye Is No Gentleman, And Proud Of It!
20 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"For a little dough, you can be well bred," reads the sign outside of Professor Bluteau's School Of Etiquette. Bluto teaching etiquette? Do you believe it?

Well, he's a phony, of course. Stupid Olive doesn't see that until the brute is trying to put the make on her, after impressing her with all his manners. Popeye, meanwhile, gets insults and bashed and has to come to the rescue.

The best of this cartoon was the humor from Popeye. If you have this on DVD and can use English subtitles, please do so to catch everything Popeye says at "etiquette" class - very funny material.

This also is another very original story, different from others. It's the creativity of these writers who can keep the material fresh and fun every time, even though the basic plot - Popeye besting Bluto - is usually the same. I have yet to find a Popeye cartoon from 1936 to 1938 that wasn't outstanding.
