Popeye, Bluto & Olive On The Dance Floor - Hilarious!
17 October 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Who are the dance sensations at Wimpy's Cafe? Well, the duo of "Popito and Olivita," of course!

Highlights of this very humorous Popeye cartoon included Bluto "scatting" down the street as he punches out Popeye's face on every billboard he sees; his comments when he looks at Olive's face on those billboards ("What a sweet mama! Boy, she's got something!"); nightclub emcee Wimpy with a top hat that is converted to a grill to make hamburgers; and much more.

The story revolves around Bluto trying to ruin the dancing pair's act. That comes after the brute getting the brushoff from Olive on the way in the nightclub. Bluto vows revenge.

I'm not a big fan of the fickle Olive Oyl but I had laugh out loud at some of the lyrics in her opening song, modestly called "Why I Am So Beautiful?" One example: "Can it be my grace or form divine? Can it be my face or these pretty feet of mine? Whooo!!" Mae Questel does a hilarious job singing the song.

What happens afterward is different in that all the violence is done while Popeye and Bluto are dancing with each other. You have to see it to believe it. The Russian dancing at the end is the best part - just an incredible hoot to watch.

This an outstanding cartoon, another of the best in perhaps the best years of Popeye: the mid-to-late 1930s.
