Decent Popeye Short

Me Musical Nephews (1942)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Popeye is watching his four nephews and they are practicing on their musical instruments but the uncle says that's enough and sends them to bed. However, once in bed that doesn't stop them from the music.

For the most part this is a mildly entertaining episode for the series that offers up some nice animation as well as a great directing job. The music numbers are extremely fast-paced and the way the action on screen mixes with the music was well-handled. There really aren't too many laughs to be found here but the highlight is the sequence where Popeye keeps opening the door trying to catch the kids making noise but they are one step ahead of him.
