Reviews and Comments

From Gnik_LJN :

The only reason I can't call it the quintessential Popeye cartoon is that it is a color two-reeler: the exception rather than the black-and-white norm. Though this IS my absolute favorite Popeye, more so than 1936's "Sindbad the Sailor" because it features more comedy. Compared to that two-reeler, this short is more focused on gags, with a lot more funny quips and more fast punches. Also he mops the floor with 40 mooks like lightning and spindashes like a bowling ball. How cool is that.
