Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Bluto is pretty mean, and there is a run in with a killer octopus near the film's ending - although there is nothing particularly frightening in this film.
  • After Bluto force-feeds Popeye a can of spinach at the climax, he weighs the apparently unconscious Popeye down to drown him. Of course, Bluto doesn't realize that he powered up Popeye by chance with that action, and the sailor man, now strong to the finish, soon recovers and defeats the bully with a mighty punch.
