Storyline

The boys are taking Olive on a picnic. It's April 1, and Bluto plays a series of "jokes" on Popeye, though of course they go beyond the bounds of acceptability, particularly once they get to the picnic grounds; Bluto puts gasoline on the fire he asks Popeye to light and swaps a beehive for the lemonade. Bluto then launches a cruel joke against Olive and frames Popeye. The capper: he replaces Popeye's spinach with a joke can, and runs off with Olive for some canoeing. But Popeye gets the last laugh with an inflatable sea monster. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

I Agree: Olive Can Be The Worst
19 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Olive is seen packing a picnic basket. Suddenly, Popeye and Bluto are at the front door. Each is expecting to go on the picnic. Popeye brings candy; Bluto brings cigars which quickly turn into a punching bag-gag once Popeye opens the box. "Ha, ha, ha," yells Bluto, "April Fool!" When Popeye sees what day it is, April 1, he laughs because he's a good-natured guy.

They drive off to the picnic and Bluto, sitting in the back seat, torments Popeye. Olive just says, "Can't ya take a joke?" This goes on and on as Bluto keeps playing April Fool's gags on Popeye and Olive keeps sadistically laughing as our guy takes physical abuse.

I agree with the other reviewers: why Popeye was in love with the fickle and unworthy Olive Oyl is beyond me. No man would put up with this dame! What an annoying woman! She certainly doesn't deserve Popeye.
