Shakespearian Spinach (1940)

*** (out of 4)

It's a big night on Broadway as Popeye is set to play Romeo to Olive Oyl's Juliette. The only problem is when Bruto arrives at the theater and learns that he has been fired as Romeo.

This is a pretty entertaining short for the series that once again features some terrific animation and there are plenty of nice laughs scattered throughout the film as well. There are many good moments but the highlight has to be the beating that Bluto gives Popeye as he's dressed up as Juliette. Yes, Popeye gets to go in drag here and it makes for a pleasant short that's certainly worth watching.
