Good Short
Beware of Barnacle Bill (1935)

*** (out of 4)

Popeye asks Olive Oyl to marry him but she turns him down because she's in love with Barnacle Bill (played by Bluto). This short isn't as funny as most in the series and the fighting scenes aren't the greatest but the movie remains quite fresh since all of the dialogue is being sung by the characters. This was done before but it works quite well here as the dialogue sounds very good being sung and makes for some smile enticing charm.

Available from Warner.
