Storyline

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 <jreeves@imdb.com>

A Haul in One (1956)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Olive Oyl is moving so she hires a couple men to come move her stuff. Of course it turns out to be Popeye and Bluto and before long they're both showing off trying to win her approval.

A HAUL IN ONE has a clever title and a few creative moments but for the most part it's certainly not one of the best films from the series. I think the best thing going for the film are a couple creative scenes where Popeye and Bluto are trying to out-do each other by packing and carrying more items. While a few of these are creative I'd be lying if I said they were funny. The animation is nice as you'd expect but there's no question that more laughs were needed.
