Popeye vs the Mouse
30 March 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Shuteye Popeye (1952)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Popeye is asleep but his incredibly loud and annoying snoring is keeping up a mouse trying to get some sleep behind the wall. Pretty soon the two are doing battle in hopes that one of them can get some sleep.

SHUTEYE POPEYE is a pretty good entry in the later day series. I don't think anyone would claim the 50's Popeye was as good as the shorts from the 30s but this one here manages to have a couple very good laughs that make it worth viewing as well as a nice little twist at the end. There's no question that the highlight comes when Popeye plants a mouse trap and then gets emotionally connected when he thinks he has hurt the mouse too badly.
