Funny Role Reversal for the Spinached One
2 October 2001 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

A very amusing turn of the plotline for the POPEYE series, as Paramount matches him up with a mouse desperately trying to sleep, but cannot due to Popeye's snoring. As a result, the mouse tries various means of eliminating Popeye (while he sleeps, adding to the humor as Popeye wakes up in various uncomfortable situations). A wonderful production, and a nice change of pace from the usual "Bluto wants Olive to date him" scenario.
