A Lesson: Don't Keep Your Windows Open When Dressing
18 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Olive Oyl continues to amaze me. I never remembered her as fickle as I now find her, watching these cartoons decades after first seeing them. Why Popeye and Bluto put up with her, or even find her worth fighting over all the time, we'll never know. In this cartoon, Popeye is proposing to his longtime girlfriend. She accepts but Bluto enters the house right then and he wants to marry her, too. She does the right thing: she goes "eeenie, meanie, minie, moe (with her nose). Wow, what commitment!

Her nose points to Popeye and she tells him to come back at 3 o'clock and she'll be dressed and ready to be married. Bluto shakes hands and pretends to be a good loser, but you know he has something up his sleeve!

Bluto, through open windows in Popeye's house, sabotages our boy at every turn, from when Popeye is taking a bath (which Bluto converts to cement) to when the sailor man is trying to get into his tuxedo.

The ending is surprise, different from most Popeye cartoons.....and very clever.
