Olive the Riveter
22 November 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Famous Studios was still doing funny cartoons at this point -- they wouldn't become completely formula bound for another four or five years. Here we see Olive, Popeye and Bluto working in an industrial plant where she is clonked on the head and proceeds to do some of the stunts from the classic HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A DREAM WALKING. Whether this is particularly wise, given that there was a war on and women were being actively indoctrinated into this sort of work is another question.

The use of color in this particular cartoon is quite dramatic, but the most interesting thing about it is that Olive shows a bit of cleavage at the beginning of the cartoon. All in all, a very watchable post-Fleischer effort.
