| "Action speaks Louder then words" goes with Popeye the Sailor
"Action speaks Louder then words." At least that is what some people say. But once you watch this short, it proofs that this quote goes with Popeye the Sailor.

This short is of at simple situation: Popeye is baby-sitting, and no it is not Swee'Pea but Betty Boop's baby brother Billy; that's what I heard. Anyway, Popeye tries to make sure he takes his nap. But with the sounds of old New York it isn't easy: Like if Popeye hears a honk of a horn or the whistle of an ocean-liner, he would go and smash the noise-maker to bits. That is what I meant by: "Action speaks Louder then words."

My favorite scenes are when Popeye tries to sing Billy to put him asleep. Of course at the first verse of the song, it wasn't the "croaky" voice we all know. It was the natural singing voice of his voice-actor Billy Costello. I also love the scene when Popeye sends a punch by wire to a radio station and slugs the singer. So anyway, I really love this Popeye short.
