Atypical Popeye, with no fisticuffs ad showing the essential natures of the three principal characters.
31 December 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This Popeye, set on New Year's Eve, doesn't feature a brawl over Olive, or over anything else, for that matter. Popeye. a good-natured sort, decides it's not right that Olive's grandma be left at home while they go out, so he invites her along. Bluto escorts Olive and they both find it amusing that Popeye asked out grandma. Popeye is the soul of courtesy to grandma. A perfect example of the type of small kindnesses the world can never have enough of, then or now.

Wimpy puts in a cameo (with a different voice) and the ending is quite funny. Listen for some of Jack Mercer's asides. This is a wonderful cartoon altogether different in mood and tone from the standard Popeye shorts, appropriately so, for the New Year's Eve setting. I wish all who read this a happy and healthy year. This short is well worth seeking out. Most recommended.
