"Fair" And A Bit Primitive
26 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Popeye and Olive are calming playing checkers while sitting on a small raft in the middle of the turbulent ocean. A flag with an "SOS" on it is attached to the raft. They spot a ship, Olive exclaims "Oh, now I can go home and watch television (which was a fairly new invention when this cartoon was released) and Popeye uses his pipe as motor to reach the ship. Unfortunately, it's a pirate ship called the "Sea Witch" and is filled with ghosts (since the ship was built in 1678).

The ghosts - with British accents - don't want to be interrupted "after all these years," so they plan to get rid of the unwanted guests. There are some funny scenes, such as Popeye using a swordfish as a saw, Olive's "swimming" on board, thinking she's in the ocean because he blindfolded head is in a bucket of water.

Overall, however, it isn't much: "fair," at best with primitive-looking artwork and no restoration on the DVD disc. This is part of the 75th Anniversary Collector's Edition of Popeye The Sailor Man in which there are 34 cartoons spread among two discs.
