Here's one for April Fool's Day! Saw this a million years ago when Boomerang played a 24 hr marathon of Popeye one time. Cookin' With Gags.

Well, it was Apr. 3rd before I got around to finally watching, but I enjoyed this one. :D Especially the spring on the axe and the scissors-forming bee swarm. If I were Popeye, I would let Bluto have Olive—they deserve each other. :lol:

And where do you buy explosive hotdogs? :?: :ugeek:

In the cartoon world, especially in the early years, the sky was the limit with the things that could blow up! :lol:

Have you ever heard of Eugene the Jeep? On Antiques Roadshow, someone brought a Eugene the Jeep toy and I had to look him up. He's cute.

Sure! You didn't know about Eugene? (Or New-gene, as I think Popeye called him.) He was a great character. Was the one on AR a stuffed one?

I didn't!! I'm not sure what it was made of, but it was a hard material and from the 30s.

Love the early B&W Popeyes where it's just so off-the-wall. I heard somewhere that in those days the Fleischers worked on the principle of "If nothing funny is happening in the shot, why is the shot there?" But the best parts to me are the little stream-of-consciousness things Popeye mutters to himself.

I think that's interesting, too! Betty Boop would sometimes do that, too.

Yes, I like those parts, too. :) The voice acting is good there.
