I might have seen a shortened version of Patriotic Popeye
4 July 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

I saw this pretty amusing Popeye cartoon after Vengeance Valley, the Burt Lancaster western that aired on Family Theater on FamilyNet. Since a commercial was inserted in the middle of this cartoon, I don't know if I saw the whole thing since Popeye didn't have too much trouble handling his two nephews as they try to light fireworks for the 4th of July. Loved the scene of Popeye bumping into the bull while playing baseball with his nephews and then getting bumped back by him as the nephews try to unlock the shed that has the fireworks! Like I said, pretty amusing but that commercial interruption and possible limited time after the movie may have made it a shortened cartoon when I saw it. So with that in mind, I'm giving Patriotic Popeye a 5.
