Storyline

Popeye and Bluto are running for president; it's election day, the vote is tied, and Olive is the only remaining voter. But she won't vote until her chores are done, so Popeye and Bluto compete to cut her wood, plow her fields, and store her hay. And then it's just an old-fashioned fight.

Popeye for President (1956)

*** (out of 4)

Popeye and Bluto are running for President and they soon realize that the election is tied with only one person in the country who hasn't voted yet and that's Olive Oyl. Both men rush to her farm to win her vote by doing the various chores.

POPEYE FOR PRESIDENT is certainly one of the better shorts from this era of the series. There's a lot of great action throughout the film as well as some nice laughs. The highlights certainly begin once we're on the farm and we get some creative scenes of Popeye helping out on the farm including a very funny bit dealing with some wood that needs chopped. Fans of the series will certainly enjoy this film as the action is non-stop.
