Fowl Play (1937)

*** (out of 4)

Popeye is about to leave for sea so he gives Olive Oyl a parrot to remind her of him. Soon Bluto shows up and begins to abuse the bird.

FOWL PLAY is the second straight film in the series to feature abuse towards an animal so obviously Fleischer and company was needing others to get pushed around and picked on. This isn't a classic for the series but there's no doubt that fans will have plenty of nice action and some good laughs along the way. There are several funny scenes here but there's no question that the highlight happens once Popeye eats his spinach and puts a hurting on Bluto. The abuse the poor Bluto takes is quite fast and ferocious. Another highlight happens when Bluto attacks the parrot who thinks that he is Dracula.
