Storyline

Popeye's birthday, and Olive managed to get enough rationed sugar to bake him a cake, so she invites him over. Shorty is suicidal because he never gets any mail; Popeye invites him, too. But Shorty is also accident prone. He goes to wash his hands, and manages to flood Popeye right into the sewer. He assembles the ingredients, then manages to get them all over Popeye. Olive tells Popeye to wash up; Shorty runs the water, and we get another flood. Shorty decides Popeye needs to play some games, so they play baseball, golf, and hockey in Olive's living room, all ending disastrously for Popeye. Popeye manages to cut a hole in the floor; Shorty falls in, Popeye throws a rug on it, then Olive arrives carrying the cake and falls in. Soon, everyone's in the furnace in the cellar.

Happy Birthdaze (1943) During shore leave, Popeye takes his suicidal (yes, suicidal) friend Shorty over to Olive's house for Popeye's birthday party. Shorty, who alternates between overenthusiastically trying to help out and moping about feeling down (and pulling out a gun to blow his brains out) manages to completely destroy the party and Popeye and Olive's relationship. This cartoon has to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen. The best gag: the conversation between Popeye and Shorty at the beginning ("Ya looks like Bob Hope!")
