Sight Gags Gaore In This Fast-Moving, Mid-'50s Popeye Cartoon
23 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I gave Bluto a whippin.' and stopped all the drippin,' I'm Popeye The Plumber Man!"

That ending song about summed up this very fast-moving and entertaining Popeye cartoon, which seems to have a new sight gag every few seconds as Bluto sabotages Olive's house and little goldfish have to help Popeye save the place.

It all starts with a leaky faucet and leads to total chaos as Popeye and Bluto pay a visit, try to play plumber and Bluto then gets nasty when Popeye proves to be the better helper. To say Bluto was a sore loser is a big understatement.

This is a lot of fun and looks good, too. A restored version would look excellent.
