Storyline

When the Sea Hag overhears Popeye wishes he was lucky she asks her vulture to get out of her pouch a coin which gives whoever has it bad luck and throws it at Popeye hoping he will be cursed. But the vulture gave her her gold luck coin which has three wishes. And when Popeye uses it, she tries to get it back before he uses the other two. Knowing that he's on his way to pick up Olive for a date the Sea Hag gets there before Popeye does and ties her up and makes herself look like Olive and goes with Popeye to a dance and roughs him up hoping to get the coin but doesn't.

The Amazing Mae Questel
21 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can't watch too many of these in a row because after a few, all the voices are too familiar. For example, in this cartoon we see the Old Sea Hag early on and it's obviously the same person who does Olive Oyl. Then we see a chauffeur arrive for Popeye and the chauffeur has the exact voice of "Wimpy."

During 1960 and 1961 when King Features did a TV show of these episodes (which were not even close the caliber of the old cartoons), Jack Mercer, Mae Questel and Jackson Beck. Mae was amazing because she voiced two of the most famous voices in cartoon history: Olive and Betty Boop! Yes, she did 150 of Betty's cartoons, as well as the famous character in this long-running animated short. Beck, by the way, also did the introductions on the famous "Superman" radio and TV shows of the 1940s and 1950s. All of these people were around 50 years of age when they voiced this Popeye TV series.

Questel's talents take up most of this cartoon as The Sea Hag tries to make life miserable for Popeye by transforming herself into Olive at a dance while leaving the real OO at home under the watch of the vulture. It's a decent story and has a few laughs, such as the Hag and the Popeye dancing.

But the real gem here is not the story but Questel.
