Popeye and Olive enter the city of Badgag and spot Bluto doing magic tricks. He hypnotizes Olive like a snake charmer. Bluto introduces himself as the Great Bourgeois and gives Olive a fancy dress, turns Popeye into a donkey, and sits on a bed of nails. Popeye pounces on the bed and turns it into springs. The boys next compete in snake charming; Popeye blows a hornpipe on his pipe. Bluto next turns Popeye into a parrot. Bluto then locks Olive in a basket and does the sword trick; Olive escapes and gives parrot Popeye his spinach, which revives him. Bluto escapes with the rope trick and a flying carpet, but Popeye uses his pipe like a rocket to get aloft. Another battle, with Popeye using Bluto's own magic to turn Bluto into a canary. Popeye and Olive fly the carpet home, past the Statue of Liberty. Written by Jon Reeves <>

If it ain't spinach, it sickens me...
28 August 2006 | by (the dragons lair) – See all my reviews

At first glance this animated short seems to be as innocent as taking candy from a baby, but a mere twenty seven seconds in we realise it's about as innocent as a nonce in a crèche. Popeye, being the sexual deviant he is, decides to take young suggestible Olive Oil to the city of Badgag, now, you don't have to be as middle class or as white as I am to realise that this is a city of carpet dodgers and pervs. In this depraved city, where anything go's and the drinks are on the house, Bluto is whoring himself out to the highest bidder! Olive wanders off from Popeyes less than safe company and is deceived by Bluto's silk like tongue. Within minutes, Bluto gives Olive a pair of Arabian Goggles to go with her fancy dress, and proceeds to turn Popeye into a donkey just for the simple joy of being able to administer punches to the backside of his drug end... After this rather quite awkward scene of events Bluto, an angry sherpa and the now donkey punched Popeye compete in can only be described as a snake charming competition. The victor of which is Popeye due to his uncanny ability to blow his pipe. Unable to quash Popeyes spirit, Bluto next rests his testicles over Popeyes right shoulder, needless to say Popeye is non-plussed. With Popeye now out of the picture, Bluto advances on Olive and attempts an almighty effort of brokebackery with his "pork sword" Somehow Olive breaks free this obvious rape attempt and sees no other option than to get Popeye his spinach... Now Popeye revived and Bluto angry as a sherpa leads to a battle of epic proportions, in which Popeyes turns Bluto's own powers against him, this is some kind of a metaphor for giving him his Arabian Goggles back. After the battle, Popeyes feels his work is done in Badgag and thusly give sweet Olive oral pleasure.
