Popeye beats a gaggle of Spooks
22 October 2009 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

You already know, I am a huge Popeye fan and I am also a fan of the Fleischer studios' work. Here is a favorite Popeye cartoon perfect for Halloween. It has a little bit of the spooky surrealism that was used in "Minnie the Moocher" and "Betty's Halloween Party", both starring Betty Boop.

In this short, Popeye, Olive Oyl & Wimpy are out for a picnic on the beach, when they come upon a ghost ship. Of course, they climb aboard the ship where the ghosts attack them; but thankfully Popeye brought his can of spinach along.

Like I had said I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love the whole cartoon. There is another good Popeye short for Halloween called "Ghosks is the Bunk" from 1939, where Popeye and Olive used invisible paint to pretend to be ghosts to scare Bluto because he was played scary trick on the pair in an old hotel.
