Storyline

Popeye's nephews happen by just as the glue factory is rejecting a sorry looking horse and decide to take it home. They want to treat it as a house pet, despite the obvious problems; Popeye says no. They try to hide it, including painting a Hitler face on its rear and calling it a painter, but keep making mistakes like feeding it horseradish (great reaction shots). Finally, they hide the horse in the closet; Popeye comes out and says that they'll have to keep it now. We see why when she's sitting at the table with her four new foals.

Horsing Around
24 July 2008 | by Seamus2829See all my reviews

This flawed,but not uninteresting Popeye short was the first one reel short shot in Technicolor (the rest of the series would be in one of several colour processes). Popeye's nephews (this time there were four of them)find an old horse that is destined to be one with the glue factory,and decide to rescue it & try to sneak it into the house, under Uncle Popeye's nose. What follows is a series of gags,where they try to hide the horse. Some of the gags really work,others are just so so (the horseradish gag is milked way beyond the point where it's funny---okay, we know horseradish is uber hot,but come on guys,the gag peters out real quick). It's still worth sticking around for the surprise ending. The problem with the Fleischer/Famous shorts is that after they were sold to television, they were scattered to the four winds,by different TV distributors which eventually went out of business, resulting in the 35 & 16mm prints being sucked into several black holes in space. Perhaps one day, this material may find itself on legal DVD release (some of the Fleischer/Famous shorts did turn up on VHS budget line videos in various states of quality).
