Date: 02/22/35
Directed by
Dave Fleischer
Animated by
Willard Bowsky and Charles Hastings
Series: Popeye
Running time (of viewed version): 5:36
Commercial DVD Availability: Pv1D2

Synopsis: Bluto barely whips his chattel, Popeye beats up and enslaves a human.

Comments: Awesome lady fish sculpture/fountain; I wonder if it is a known real life thing. That's one un-Popeye Popeye voice; so very Bill Murray. How common were horses in everyday city life in 1933? My mother remembers a horse drawn vegetable cart in the '50s (complete with foreign accent), but not in a city. Love In Bloom is played. Popeye is stealing food from the vegetable man (including spinach, which you'd think he'd keep on hand). Popeye's chest sprouts pubes. It's weird seeing Olive simply hating Bluto. Olive's eaten shoe retains continuity.
