One of a number of Popeye shorts which were sent off to Asia in the 80's to undergo the infamous redraw and colorization process. See more »
There is a redrawn colorized version from 1987 originally commissioned by Ted Turner. See more »
The Jeep's 2nd Cartoon
Here is another 1940 Popeye short that I like, that features another character from the E.C. Seagar comic strip - Eugene, the Jeep the puppy-dog-like creature with strange powers. The Jeep made his first appearance in the cartoons in a 1938 short, where Popeye asks him to track Swee'Pea. He also made a cameo appearance in the short "Wotta Nightmare;" I love the Jeep, he's cute, and I wonder how the Fleischer Studio made the Jeep's sounds.
Anyway in this short, Popeye receives Eugene as a birthday present from Olive, and he took him in, fed him and made a little bed for him, remembering Olive's note said "Be sure he sleeps outdoors at night." But when it was time to go to bed, there is Eugene in Popeye's bed. So whenever Popeye tries to put him outside, there he is - Eugene. I guess Popeye didn't know about his phasing powers that makes him disappear in one place and reappear at another.
As I said many times (I know it is annoying), I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love this cartoon from beginning to end.
