Dizzy Divers (1935) Poster

Popeye and Bluto are deep sea divers. Popeye has a treasure map; for some reason he cuts Bluto in on the deal, but of course, Bluto's idea of 50-50 isn't exactly fair...:

Popeye and Bluto actually are on the same team? Well, it doesn't last long - about a minute!

These two adversaries, deep-sea divers in this story, are pouring over a treasure map and trying to figure out what's the best way to sail to find it. Their main concern seems to be sharks and barracudas in the waters surrounding where they think the treasure lies. Bluto pronounces the fish "bara-cooties."

Popeye shakes hands and says, "We have a deal: 50-50." Bluto agrees but within seconds pictures having 100 percent of it and starts trying kill our guy!! Holy smokes, is this guy is greedy AND brutal! Bluto beats him up, takes the map and leaves on his boat, waving the map and laughing, "Fifty-fifty. Toodle- dee-doo!"

You know Popeye is going to go right after him and he does, rowing his own tugboat because the tugboat isn't going fast enough! Man, people forget Popeye was incredibly strong even without the spinach. Of course, Bluto was even stronger because he almost always pulverized Popeye until our guy could eat his greens.

Anyway, what happens here on the sea and underneath it with the treasure all is funny - good stuff. Olive is helping Popeye and Wimpy (that traitor!) is helping Bluto. Not only do the two boys battle it out but they have to fight off the sea creatures below. This is a lot of fun to watch, to say the least.

Once again, we get some excellent artwork. The details show a lot of work went into there early black-and-white episodes, far more than in latter day (i.e. 1960s) Popeye cartoons. This really looks good on the restored new Popeye: The Early Years DVD package. Obviously, the people who worked on these cartoons for the DVD put a good effort into this, too. The shipwreck underwater scenes look fantastic! This cartoon and the others have never good better and are highly recommended.
