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>

Bluto's cruelty makes for a hilarious cartoon.
3 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bluto has many cruel April Fools' Day pranks in store for Popeye in this cartoon. I can't bring myself to spoil any of them for you, but they are hilariously malicious. While Bluto gets what's coming to him in the end, he certainly shines in this cartoon.

Bluto is having the time of his life as he pulls trick after trick on his rival. His leering laughter and taunting 'APRIL FOOLS' shouts add to the mayhem.

Watching Popeye cartoons in adulthood can be a hit or miss affair, but this writer imagines that almost anyone with a dark sense of humor will enjoy Cooking With Gags. You can watch this cartoon on the internet for free, so please check it out.
