By Cheating, of course
15 December 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

An early "cheater", a cartoon put together by using clips from earlier cartoons with enough filler to make it a "new" picture. Of course, this being a Fleischer Popeye, it's funny and there are plenty of "Impossikible" stunts. A good introduction to Popeye.
