He falls asleep helping hoist the mast. While Pappy sleeps, Popeye rebuilds his side and finishes the above-decks, with a little help from spinach, of course.

Popeye vs the Old Man
9 February 2017 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

My Pop, My Pop (1940)

*** (out of 4)

Popeye and his old man are building a boat but the son tells him to take a break because he's old. This here sets off the old man to try and prove that being old doesn't mean a thing.

MY POP, MY POP is a pretty interesting title because of the way it plays out. You'd think that the message would be that the old man can do anything that Popeye can but in fact it's the complete opposite and the old man is made to look exactly like.... an old man! The film still has plenty of fun back and forth between the father and son and there's also some funny action as Popeye is pretty much forced to build a boat on his own.
