Reviews and Comments

From Gnik_LJN :

It feels like this short is where the Fleischer-typical ad-libs reigned supreme. Every character seems to have constant under-the-breath mutterings, funny gibberish noises and/or clever remarks, such as when Popeye starts trembling out of control to play sick and he inserts, "Hey Olive, look, I'm getting sick", or when Olive impatiently says "What next, what next?" as the doctors ("pehpehpehpehpeh") carry Popeye to another room. The animated behaviors of the doctors, the skewed architecture of the hospital and the improv dialogue above really add to the surreal fun of the cartoon, which with the "playing sick" premise really wouldn't be that funny if made in any other way.
