Popeye begins his movie career by singing his theme song, demonstrating his strength at a carnival, dancing the hula with Betty Boop, pummeling Bluto, eating his spinach and saving Olive Oyl from certain doom on the railroad tracks.
There was a time when every popular sitcom had it's own Saturday Morning Cartoon. And even though they were on their way out, "Mork & Mindy", "Larverne & Shirly" & "Happy Days" were no exception to the trend in the early eighties.
This hour-long block was actually two series. The first was a cartoon version of "Mork & Mindy" in which the main characters were teenagers. The second was "Laverne & Shirley with the Fonz", which was really just the second season of "Laverne & Shirley in the Army" with Fonzie (and his dog Mr. Cool) thrown into the mix.
Needless to say, both shows were awful and the whole thing was canceled after the first season. It is an interesting piece of TV history, even though it was just another poorly-animated attempt to cash on on popular culture by animation giant Hanna-Barbera.
