Fashionable business attire for women

Fashionable business attire for women

This is an in-progress episode guide for the Fleischer/Paramount Popeye cartoons, ranging from 1933 to 1957. There are 230 episodes accounted for here. As I get info on each episode I will post it here, and once it is complete well, I'll say so. ;^) Please do not copy any of the synopses and/or comments here without permission, as they are mine and original.

Yes, I know that these are "theatrical films" and not "episodes" but, it is easier to refer to them as episodes, which is why I have done so. If you are a Popeye purist, please avert your eyes. ;^)

And, those links to the Internet Movie Database are there for a reason. If you have seen the film in question, please go to the IMDb and vote for it! Thanks. ;) (If any of the links don't work please tell me.) While you're at the IMDb and you've seen the film in question, why not leave a review? I don't have to be the only one having that kind of fun. ;^)

Studio: Max Fleischer
Popeye wages war against Pierre Bluto the lumberjack because the latter didn't like Olive's spinach.
Comments: I have one thing to say about this one: Popeye's statement that "Anyone who doesn't like spinach is my emeny" must have scared a lot of little kids into eating their vegetables. Heck, I wouldn't want to be Popeye's emeny!

Director: I. Sparber
Studio: Paramount / Famous Studios
Olive presents Popeye with a foofy French poodle, but Popeye's embarrassed to be seen in public with a "sissy dawrg."

Comments: Firstly, you should know that this is not the Barnacle Bill from the comic strip, but is merely Bluto under a different name. Also, most of the film is done like some sort of operatic ballad--very unusual. The end is great. Popeye has a backbone after all!

Comments: As usual, Wimpy is the world's worst customer--but as usual, nobody seems to care. This film is mostly a front to show clips from earlier films. The end is worth it, however.

THE DANCE CONTEST
Released: Nov 23, 1934
Studio: Max Fleischer
Olive and Popeye join a dance contest (judged by Wimpy), and Bluto, apparently going stag, attempts to take over as Olive's partner.

It's Popeye vs Count Noah Count in the cross-country race to end all cross-country races! But how can Popeye's broken-down jalopy ever win out against Noah's souped-up convertible?
Comments: I think the best part about this ep is Noah's tendancy to call Popeye 'Papaya.' By the way, why didn't anyone bother to tell that poor highway patrolman about the race?

Studio: Max Fleischer
Popeye's long quest to find his Pappy leads him to Goonland, where Pappy is being held captive by Goons.

GOPHER SPINACH
Released: Dec 10, 1954
Director: Seymour Kneitel
Studio: Paramount / Famous Studios
A gopher invades Popeye's spinach bed.
Comments: You know, it's kinda creepy when you realize Popeye's pampering these spinach plants like human babies just so he can eat them. Anyways, here is another 'small animal gets the better of Popeye' story. It shocked me to see a mad-enough-to-kill Popeye chasing the cute little gopher with a loaded rifle. Not one of the better eps, IMHO.

Studio: Max Fleischer
Popeye is invited over to Olive's house for a hamburger dinner, but Wimpy gets there first - dressed like the sailor! How long can this masquerade go on?
Comments: Amazing what a corset and a Hallowe'en mask can do, isn't it? My absolute favorite Popeye film ever, the one that made me a true fan of the early cartoons. Wimpy's a clever cuss. I would walk around for days squeaking "I'm Popeye!" after seeing this film as a kid. And my brother (bless 'im) would reply, "You ought to be ashamed of yourself for looking like Popeye!"

A yes, hungry goat gets aboard a ship Popeye is working on and begins eating everything in sight. But if the Admiral catches Popeye trying to stop the goat, the sailor's in for it...
Comments: Oddly enough, one of my very favorites. The goat is almost as funny as Bugs Bunny himself. "I'm normal, ain't I?" - when said in the middle of eating an anchor chain - is as hysterical as sin.

Swee'pea just won't stop crying, so Olive enlists Popeye and Bluto to cheer the kid up.

The Popeye Fan Club (is that us? ;^) send a telegram to Popeye and Bluto asking them to cut out on the violence and behave like civilized human beings.
Comments: Kind of a weird ep, but in an entertaining way I suppose. The 'small talk' the trio make here in an effort to be 'civilized' is pretty thought-provoking. Watch for the telegram boy to get beaned by a flying log at the beginning.
