Wash Them Windows
4 April 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Paneless Window Washer (1937)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Bluto is in the window washing business where his racket is to get windows dirty so that he can clean them. He gets to the window's of Olive Oyl but she rejects his service because Popeye is going to do the cleaning. Soon the two men are battling over the proper way to clean a window.

Here's another very good entry int he Fleischer series, which included some very good shorts. This one here is extremely fast-paced and best of all is the fact that there's plenty of fights and violence to keep things very entertaining. Once again the animation itself is wonderful and especially a sequence where Popeye is beating Bluto every which way he can and Bluto's body just floats around like a feather.
