Storyline

Olive is reading ghost stories to the boys. Popeye scoffs; Bluto decides to take advantage of this by staging various pranks (a headless man, an animated skeleton, and a sheet-over-balloon ghost). He pins the blame on Popeye and then goes to comfort Olive. Popeye retaliates by turning invisible, thanks to a jar of vanishing cream. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Bluto Turns Comedian - Very, Very Funny!
19 March 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Olive Oyl is tormenting her two suitors, once again. She's sitting in the middle of the couch reading ghost stories to Popeye on one side and Bluto on the other. We can read both men's thoughts, and both are annoyed the other guy is there. (Why would Olive invite both of them over? She had to be sadistic, among other things.)

Anyway, Olive reads aloud about ghosts and goblins and Popeye said, "Olive, there ain't no such things. They're just figa-mentations of your imagine-agativeations." That gives Bluto an idea. He pretends to be sleepy and leaves.

Popeye thinks he has Olive all to himself, but Bluto is back dressed as a goblin and sounding like Vincent Price. It's hilarious! Olive jumps right out of her stockings! Bluto laughs his butt off.

Bluto plays one gag after another....and they are good! This is one time I could laugh at the big oaf, and think what he was doing was cool.Finally, it looks like Bluto has won the battle as Olive thinks Popeye is behind all the scare tactics....but you who will get the last laugh!

This was an entertaining slapstick-type Popeye cartoon.
