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>

Peeeeeeeeeeeeeee Yooooooooooooo!
6 January 2005 | by (Montes Claros, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Of all the propaganda cartoons made during the WWII, those made by Paramount always seemed to me the most childish and offensive, and with this one is no exception. Recorded one year after the nip-away extravaganza "You're a sap, Mr. Jap, this one shows Bluto ,the once world most extra ordinary fellow as the brave Sinbad, trying at any cost to escape from drafting. Just like on those shorts where him and Popeye wants to get broken to be hospitalized by Olive, here he tries to get horribly injuried and not get drafted.He eventually succeeds on that, but as usual the Patriotism hits him in the heart when he sees Pop being slaughtered by five stereotypical japs. Here the good minutes of the short begins. Popeye wakes up, chomps his spinach, makes Bluto swallow the can and they transform into the Fist of Justice, butchers the nips, give Mr. Hirohito his last waltz, then obviously go sock Adolf"Peeeeeeeee-yooooooooooo" Hitler (the most ridiculous Adolf caricature ever made). At the ending Bluto agrees with being drafted. After all the caricatures and the unimaginative plot, this one is somewhat cool to see, even being a little childish at times.

7 outta 10.
