Storyline

Bluto the blacksmith gets a draft notice. Popeye is in charge of the local draft board. Bluto gives a sob story about his ailments, but makes a miraculous recovery when Popeye's gorgeous "secretary" appears (really a 1000 pound weight in disguise). Bluto, desperate, dives out the skyscraper window; Popeye tries to catch him, but they both plummet through the sidewalk, and the devil chases them back out of hell. Bluto dashes into traffic, but the car suffers more. He then drops a safe on his head, but ends up inside, along with Popeye. Bluto tosses the safe (with Popeye) into an orphanage, where Japanese are plotting in secret. Bluto shows up in time to help, but they're quickly overpowered, so Popeye shares his spinach with Bluto and they team up; their American fist is then felt overseas by both Hirohito and Hitler. Bluto signs up, but he needs help spelling his name. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Joining the navy
2 June 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Bluto is being drafted to be in the navy. I love it when he gets the letter: 'who do I know that can write?'. But he really doesn't feel patriotic and when he comes to the office of navy draftsman Popeye he acts like he's unfit to join. When that doesn't work he tries to be hurt in several ways so he won't have to go into the navy.

But things complicate as he sees Popeye being kicked around by some Japanese, and without thinking (literally) he helps Popeye defeat them (but not without the help of the well-known spinache), and finally signs in anyway.

Pretty decent propaganda with some good humour, though there have been better. I'd like to give it a 6/10.
