How You See This 'Case' Depends
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's "the case of Bluto versus Popeye, with Judge Wimpy (eating a hamburger) presiding." It seems Bluto has enough "beatings," charging Popeye The Sailor Man with assault and battery.

Bluto comes to court bandaged from head to toe and gives his testimony. "He always beats me up for no reason," says poor Bluto. He then tells of two episodes in which Popeye crushed him. When Popeye protests each time, the only thing the judge can say is "Order in the court!" and then stuff another whole hamburger in his mouth.

The spinach-eating sailor man then gets on the stand to tell his story, the one where Bluto is a magician-hypnotist.

I get the feeling this was another of those 'toons that was mainly footage from past ones. If not, this is the normal entertaining short, but if it is - and you've seen the scenes shown here - then it's a waste of time. I hadn't seen anything shown here in this one, so it was fine....but nothing really laugh-out-loud funny in the final seconds.
