Popeye (voice) (uncredited)


Popeye is planting his spinach bed. But just as he finishes, the plants start disappearing. He discovers a gopher filching the little baby plants and starts battling it. They tussle for a while until Popeye gets fed up and fetches his shotgun. He chases the rodent, running past a bull and cornering it, but he doesn't have the heart to shoot. He throws away his gun, hitting the bull, who attacks. The gopher rushes to the spinach patch, eats a plant, and hurls the bull into a ravine. He teams up with Popeye to plant more spinach.

Funny but Forgettable Popeye Cartoon
20 December 2000 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

A humorous but forgettable part of the POPEYE franchise...which by the Fifties had totally forgotten its Segar/sailing roots. The gopher looks like Paramount/Famous Studios were leaning towards Disney in regards to characterization. Worth a look, but no real challenger for 'epic' status.
