Infant Swee' Pea on the rampage
8 September 2010 | by (Bronx, NY) – See all my reviews

In "Baby Wants Spinach" (1950), Popeye has to take care of baby Swee' Pea, who looks very different and even younger here than he did in the 1930s Popeye cartoons. Swee' Pea wanders off, of course, to chase a bouncing ball and wreaks havoc with a streetcar and a massive drawbridge before finally reaching the city zoo, where an elephant, a lion, an alligator and a gorilla get involved in the action, all while Popeye is in furious pursuit. (Curiously, no other humans beside Popeye and Swee' Pea are glimpsed at all once they leave Olive's house.) Eventually, Swee' Pea has to eat spinach to rescue Popeye from a gorilla, making this one of three Popeye cartoons seen during a recent cartoon binge to feature someone other than Popeye eating spinach, the others being "Lunch with a Punch" and "Beaus Will Be Beaus." The TV print I saw of this cartoon is five-and-a-half minutes long, so it has fewer gags than a standard seven-minute cartoon.
