Olive Oyl for President was another vintage cartoon I decided to watch this Election Day
4 November 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

On this Election Day, I thought I'd look at some vintage cartoons that had popular characters running or dreaming of such. Having just watched Betty Boop for President, I checked this out from ThadBlog right after. With the same voice talent (Mae Questel) and some of the same music from the previous black-and-white short, this color cartoon has Olive bopping Popeye after he laughs when she expresses interest in running for the highest office in the land. Most of what Ms. Oyl would do is pretty silly and a little sexist (like having her cabinet consist of the male Paramount contract roster) but by the time she addresses the elephant and donkey audience in Congress and gets them to stop arguing by having Cupid shoot (through a machine gun!) arrows on them, I was amused enough to find this animated short pretty entertaining in its own right. Oh, and there's a cameo of Famous Studios' Little Audrey licking a giant ice cream cone...
