Popeye and Bluto are, believe it or not, pals and partners in a moving company. (Maybe it's because Popeye isn't squinting here.) Anyhow, Olive has made the mistake of hiring them. She hasn't finished packing yet, so the boys, smitten as soon as she answers the door, compete to help her. Once packed, they compete to move more impressive piles of her belongings. Popeye easily wins these contests, even though Bluto locks him in the van at one point. At the end, Bluto socks Popeye into the piano, then into a table; though he hardly seems to need it, Popeye still eats his spinach, then thrashes Bluto. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Popeye The Super Moving Man
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Popeye and Bluto are actually in business together, as movers. We first see them moving cars to get their truck through to Olive Oyl's apartment building. Olive is having a difficult time trying to pack, getting literally bounced through the ceiling and her head through the bathroom sink, plus other assorted strange sights.

When Popeye and Bluto arrive, she still isn't even close to finishing her packing. When Olive answers the door, the two guys are star-struck. You'd think they'd seen the most beautiful woman in the world. Then, the competition starts. So much for partnership!

No matter what Bluto does, Popeye tops him with some incredible feats (and very funny). "Why, dat show off," says a frustrated Bluto. Popeye is so strong, so good at this that Olive swoons and says, "Ohhh, what a man!!"

The ending is a bit silly but overall this was a lot of fun to watch as Popeye outdid himself with super-human feats.
