This is the second time George W. Geezil, makes an appearance in a Popeye cartoon. Unlike his first appearance in A Clean Shaven Man (1936) which was a non-speaking cameo this is a fairly big role. See more »

Can The Bear Outsmart Popeye?
28 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Popeye plans on getting a "bearskin coat" for Olive for her birthday, and goes down to the local furrier to buy one. However, the owner, "G.G. Geezil," tries to pull a fast one and sell him a rabbit coat instead. How the owner is exposed as a crook is pretty funny.

Popeye winds up going out in the forest to shoot a bear and make his own bearskin coat. That's the bulk of the cartoon: a contest between Popeye and a pretty funny bear, who uses "sympathy" to prevent himself from being shot.

The bear, and his whole family, are very clever. The ending of this, though, is not what you'd expect, or the way it appears it is going to end. It has several twists, the last one on the last "shot" being one that will you scratch your head and think about it. For that reason alone, I elevated this from seven to eight stars. It was a very clever finish.
