This is the first Popeye cartoon. He had appeared in newspaper comic strips. At the beginning we get to hear the entire version of his theme song as he disintegrates various items of property. While impressive, he is really pretty destructive. Of course, Bluto shows up and he has to deal with him. At no point does the big guy seem to have a chance. Of course, he can't leave Olive Oyl alone and Popeye saves her several times. Mostly, they show off at the carnival where Bluto does something well and Popeye does him one better. Betty Boop makes and appearance as a hula girl and Popeye gets on stage and copies her dancing. Eventually, Bluto ties Oliive to a railroad track (original!) and this forces the use of spinach, that performance enhancing drug. This is really a nice introduction to the Popeye oeuvre.
