This cartoon makes use of Fleischer's Tabletop process, which animates the cells vertically between set pieces, in this case a model of the city street, in order to create the feeling of depth. The whole effect is lost in the color version, as the backgrounds is a flat redraw. See more »

in this animated short,Popeye takes Swee' Pea to the zoo,and of course chaos and hi jinx ensue,with Popeye being pretty much oblivious.this is the 1st Popeye short i have seen,and i thought it was quite funny,and of course absurd.this is one of the short films from the Fleisher studio,who also did a number of Superman animated shorts,17 in all,i think.one of the funniest things about Popeye is his strange way of speaking,or mumbling rather.that and the fact that he always has a can of spinach on him no matter where he goes.of course,as soon as the can of spinach is drained,Popeye becomes super strong.in just over 7 minutes,there is a lot packed into this short.i really enjoyed it.for me,Popeye:Little Swee'Pea is an 8/10
