Popeye with live action

When I first saw this back in the 1960's Thought it was great. Made popeye look almost real. there were only a few made like this. I can only remember the other one was when a boy in the movie theater tossed popeye a can of spinach .

these old cartoons should never be forgoten.

Probably the finest "cheater" cartoon ever made. According to Leslie Cabarga, the film may have been put together when a group of Fleischer animators circa 1934 resigned en masse; this also was the catalyst for low-totem-pole animator Jack Mercer to become the Popeye we all know and love (after Billy Costello was fired).
Very endearing--I like Popey's compassion for and counseling of the little boy.
The addition of sound on top of the animation (the Fleischer ALWAYS worked this way) gives an extra touch of hilarity to the live-action sequences.

A very cute, funny, and entertaining film, albeit not a very PC one with today's message of conflict/resolution for kids. I love seeing the old clips from past films. Some people think this kind of episode is a rip off, but I disagree. Blending the old with the new is a clever art form that is not as easy as it seems. Of course, an even better art is the blending of humans with cartoons. Fleischer was the master of this, especially in his Betty Boop films. One of the old episodes they show is in fact, from Popeye's first appearance in a Betty Boop cartoon. Great stuff! (All color or semi-color copies of this film should be destroyed on sight).
