#4 - VACATION WITH PLAY

 




 
 
 

An Olive Oyl with a pleasing countenance looks forward to her vacation at Lake Narrowhead with Popeye as the cartoon opens.


 
 

 

Her face remains pretty throughout the cartoon, as when she's urging Popeye to join her in participating in the resort's activities.





In addition, the artists and animators also gave her shapely legs in several shots...


 
 
 
 

...as when Olive storms off to join an athletics class.

Olive goes into "All Out Flirt Mode" to attract the instructor's attention...


 

...striking a pose by the pool...


 
 

 

...and using her eyes and "doll face" to good advantage.










An angry Olive is still attractive...


 
 

...in the archery and golf scenes...

 

...and as she's trying later to escape from Bluto.


Williams Sisters, eat your hearts out!!

In a quick frame at the tennis net, Olive's wearing make-up and has some curves as Bluto moves in for a kiss.



But, of course, Popeye has to interrupt because, hey, it's his cartoon and he has to get the girl!

Off to a canoeing lesson...

...where Bluto croons and Olive swoons!

There must be easier ways to be a hosiery model...

...than to have your lower half sticking out of a floating door...










 
 

...or to be netted like a fish!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Maybe she should switch to being a shorts/pants model?


 
 
 

The creators finally found a safer way for Olive to show off her legs...


 
 
 
 
 

...a friendly game of ping pong.






 

#3 - COPS IS TOPS

 

Policewoman Olive has a cute face and a pleasing shape in many frames of this cartoon...

...such as when she's explaining her calling to Popeye...

...happily standing watch over the neighborhood...

...stopping a runaway horse...


...or recovering after Popeye pushes her out of the way using a baby carriage.


 
 
 
 

Olive is stern-faced, but still attractive while arresting miscreants -including Popeye!!! 










 
 

 

Though near the climax of the film Olive is drawn plainer than she is in the rest of the cartoon, she still has her cuter and curvier moments.


 
 

Of course, the sequence this cartoon is famous for is when Olive does a Claudette Colbert "It Happened One Night" move...
 
 

...in order to stop a fleeing bank robber's car, showing off her face, legs, and hour-glass figure.
 
 

The hapless bank robber (should we feel sorry for a crook?), being a cartoon male, can't take his eyes off of Olive as he speeds away from the scene. 
 
 

So, he slams into a brick wall and Olive makes the arrest.







 
 
 

#2 - MESS PRODUCTION

 


 
 
 

I ranked this cartoon so high because of its historical significance.
 

 While some Famous Studios' films before it had hinted at the Olive Oyl to come, and some after it reverted to the Fleischeresque Ms. Oyl, this animated short is generally regarded as the first appearance of the "pretty Olive Oyl" and marked a turning point for the series.























 
 

 

Along with the scene of Olive applying make-up outside the factory, another fan favorite is Olive "sleep kissing" after she's bonked on the head.

And everybody (except Bluto) likes it when she kisses Popeye at the end.
