For Those Who Like The Bizarre & Frenetic!
26 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a strange Popeye cartoon because first the first two-and-a-half minutes, you'd think it wasn't a Popeye cartoon; it was someone else. It's a goat, and he even stops and talks to us - the audience, which is usually pretty funny. Bugs Bunny and other Loony Tunes characters used to do that quite a bit.

It's World War II and there is a scrap metal drive going. Hey, how's a respectable goat going to eat? The goat finally spots a big ship and sees a lot of potential food with all that metal. After 2:38 of the cartoon has elapsed, Popeye finally shows up.

Some very clever jokes are seen from that point on, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen this one. Suffice to say, you might go from rooting against this weird goat to rooting for him. It's a really bizarre, frenetic cartoon - with no spinach, either! Just when I was getting discouraged with these 1943 Popeye cartoons, a good one like this pops up, giving me hope I'll see more.

The ending to this cartoon is really great.
