Cartoon Production Information:


Title card reads: "W'ere On Our Way To Rio." The opening and (possibly) closing titles are on curtains. Different Popeye theme music is heard in the opening graphics.

In a censored scene cut from prints in release today, Popeye says, "Senorita, I don't do no Sambo dancin'." (This line has since been restored.)

This is the last cartoon in which Dave Barry supplies the voice of Bluto. Starting in the next cartoon, Jackson Beck would permanently do the voice for Bluto.

The voice for Olive Oyl is unknown as it is not Margie Hines or Mae Questel who voiced Olive in this film.

Popeye ends up wearing Olive's clothes.

Borrows a bit of material from Kickin' The Conga Round (1942).

Made during World War II when the US was pushing for a strong good neighbor policy with South America. (Walt Disney himself would make an extended tour of South America.)

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Best music, best gags, but, unfortunately, virtually impossible to find.

Music and great animation (check out the scene where Popeye does his spinach-powered samba) make this a must see cartoon. The opening sequence features a catchy tune and laughs as a parrot is mistaken for a banana. Bluto's singing voice is a smooth...  (read more)

This has always been MY favorite Popeye cartoon. Mostly it is because of the lively music. Ialso enjoyed the opening scenes when Popeye was trying to eat a banana, and wound up with a parrot.
Ialso have to agree that Bluto does indeed have a fine...  (read more)
