Storyline

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.

Enjoyable Popeye Short

Gopher Spinach (1954)

*** (out of 4)

Popeye is out planting baby spinach's in his garden when suddenly they begin to disappear. It doesn't take long for him to realize that a gopher is stealing them.

Fans of Popeye should enjoy this short, which has a fairly good story but also plenty of action to go along with the laughs. Obviously Bluto will always be the greatest villain but the gopher here managed to make for a lot of fun and especially during a prank involving a lawn mower. As you'd expect the animation itself is quite impressive and with such a short running time there's no downtime in regards to entertainment.
