I wouldn't put this cartoon on the TV if Al Sharpton is coming over for a visit.
19 January 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I was able to find this cartoon on YouTube, I seriously doubt if you'll ever see it on television. It's because by any reasonable standard, the film is rather racist and clearly will offend many viewers.

When the film begins, Popeye is setting out to find his long-lost Pappy. As for Pappy, he's king on some tropical island and doesn't wanna be found. But when the natives (all sporting bones and big lips) see Popeye they decide to eat him! Apparently tossing him in a giant stewpot ignites Pappy's dormant fatherly feelings and so together, he and Popeye kick some native butt.

The problem with this one is the racist stereotypes. But it also is problematic because it simply isn't funny and the world is no worse off if the folks who own the copyright to this one keep it buried.
