Pappy The Outraegous Pilot!
7 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This isn't too bad, thanks to Pappy, although this is yet another example of a 1941 cartoon that looks like it has been drawn by someone different. Perspective is out of whack and the humans look bigger than normal. Popeye doesn't quite act the same, either. Nonetheless, it is still an entertaining animated short and Pappy is always worth a few laughs.

Popeye runs an airport. That's what the sign over the hangar says, but it looks like he builds planes and, perhaps, teaches people how to fly. He advertises for "young, healthy and good-looking pilots," which leaves Pappy out. Pappy wants to take a plane up and give it a spin.

He claims he knows how to fly, but we know he doesn't. Popeye knows, too, and says nix in a number of funny ways. However, the old geezer figures a way to get a plane skyward and where he goes is pretty outrageous - across the globe and, in no time, he's way above the earth.....way above.

Popeye and his old man verbally spar with a few funny lines, too. Overall, the first half of this is far better than the second because of that although it was fun watching Pappy go berserk in his plane.
