The Lengths Popeye Goes To Help His Pappy!
24 November 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

"Pappy" has a hangover ("er, headache," as he explains to his son Popeye) and just wants some peace and quiet as he sleeps it off. Popeye tries to oblige.

Oh, boy, does Popeye try. The lengths he goes to please his pappy! Popeye first has to use his brains and he comes up with a clever way to stop a baby across the street from crying. (Popeye doesn't think of just shutting his window.) After that, it gets physical and Popeye battles noisy trucks, general traffic, factory whistles and then louder construction noise, including the demolition of a building.

There is a good ending to this cartoon as Pappy is last seen dancing and scatting to the music at some dance.....apparently well-rested. Popeye, of course, is pooped.

Pappy is a great character in these early 1940s cartoons. Jack Mercer does a super job with his voice, as both father and son.
