Cops Is Tops (1955)

Olive joins the police force. Over-protective Popeye follows her around, "rescuing" her but she's fully capable of handling herself. Can't quite say the same for Popeye.


Izzy Sparber (as I. Sparber)

Olive Oyl becomes a lady cop. Popeye follows her around to protect her, but always winds up getting in the way as she performs a string of miraculous escapades. He does this once to often, in Olive's opinion, and finds himself in jail with a bunch of bank robbers. When Olive becomes involved with a masher who is too much for her to handle, Popeye gulps his spinach, breaks out of jail cell and rushes to her rescue. The heroic Popeye is rewarded by being inducted into the Women's Police Force. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Very funny

I am not a big Popeye fan but happened to catch this while channel surfing today. What caught my attention was seeing Olive Oyl taking on a job a policewoman, something I didn't think was accepted back in the 1930s. However, I see now by coming to the Internet Movie Data Base that this short was produced in 1955. So now I understand. Still, it was great to see Olive doing police work. Popeye kept tabs on her by following every move she made so she wouldn't get hurt. I never saw Bruto in this episode but did hear his voice, or so I thought. This was a good cartoon and perhaps I'll tune in more to the Popeye hour on Boomerang. This particular cartoon, though, is a must see.
