BALLAST - THE REST

 

These are the cartoons that rounded out the series.  If you're really in the mood to see a Popeye cartoon, they're okay, otherwise you might want to pass on them.  (Cartoons are listed in order of appearance.)


 

You're A Sap, Mr. Jap (1942)

Popeye versus stereotypical Japanese in this World War II piece of propaganda which even features Popeye flushing them down the toilet.

Alona On The Sarong Seas (1942)

Popeye and Bluto fall for virgin, nature "goddess" Olive who is pledged to the Great Volcano on a tropical island.



A Hull Of A Mess (1942)

Popeye and Bluto are ship builders competing for a defense contract.

Scrap The Japs (1942)

Popeye versus a Japanese plane and aircraft carrier.  The Japanese turn into rats in a cage at the end of the cartoon in a bit of unfunny, heavy-handed, wartime propangada.

Spinach For Britain (1943)

More World War II escapades as Popeye tries to deliver the green stuff to England and a sub tries to stop him.

A Jolly Good Furlough (1943)

Popeye finds that time off with his nephews is anything but restful as he keeps being victimized by their home defense plans.

Her Honor The Mare (1943)

Historically significant as being the first Popeye short in color.  Popeye's nephews try to hide their new pet, a horse, from the sailor.




(Hitler is in the window.)

Spinach-Packing Popeye (1944)

Essentially just a "clip" cartoon made up mainly of footage from the Fleischer two-reelers, as Popeye dreams he's trying to convince Olive that he hasn't lost his punch.  I prefer seeing the originals in their entirety.

She-Sick Sailors (1944)

Bluto disguises himself as Superman to win Olive, the comic book fan (see, I knew she and I had something in common!). 





Some funny bits, such as the way Bluto stops a train, but a very disturbing scene in which Bluto machine-guns Popeye.

Mess Production (1945)

Historically significant as the debut of the re-vamped Olive Oyl in a classic scene. 









Other than that, though, the cartoon has Popeye and Bluto routinely competing for Olive on the job in a factory.

House Tricks (1946)

Olive lets Popeye and Bluto build her house.  Note to Ms. Oyl: Sure, a contractor would have cost more money, but remember, you get what you pay for!



Service With A Guile (1946)

Service station owner Olive Oyl lets Popeye and Bluto help her fix a V.I.P.'s car.  Another note to Ms. Oyl: Your business is only as good as the people you hire!



Peep In The Deep (1946)

Popeye and Bluto go deep-sea diving in order to locate treasure and, once again, Olive's thing for Frank Sinatra figures into the cartoon's last gag.

Spinach Vs. Hamburgers (1948)

Popeye tries to convince his nephews to eat at his spinach restaurant rather than Wimpy's hamburger joint. (Wimpy owns a diner?  Doesn't he eat up all his profits?)  Just another "clip" cartoon.

Popeye's Premiere (1949)

Popeye and Olive watch a shortened version of Fleischer's "Aladdin And His Wonderful Lamp."  I prefer the original, thanks anyway.   But Popeye and Olive look cute in their limo.



Hot Air Aces (1949)

Popeye and Bluto race aircraft.



Popeye Makes A Movie (1950)

Re-cycled footage from Fleischer's "Popeye Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves."  Again, give me the original.



Baby Wants Spinach (1950)

Swee'Pea keeps getting in danger as he crawls through a zoo.

Riot In Rhythm (1950)

Essentially a remake of the far superior, "Me Musical Nephews."

Thrill Of Fair (1951)

Swee'Pea crawls around a fair this time.



Let's Stalk Spinach (1951)

Popeye as Jack In The Beanstalk

Punch And Judo (1951)

Orphans help Popeye win a prize fight by using the magic of television.

Lunch With A Punch (1952)

Popeye relates a story of when he, Bluto, and Olive Oyl were in elementary school.

Swimmer Take All (1952)

Popeye and Bluto race across the English Channel.



Friend Or Phony (1952)

Another "clip" cartoon.  Bluto convinces Popeye to throw away his spinach.  What a sap!

Popalong Popeye (1952)

Popeye tells the story of when he was a dude out west and used spinach (what else?) to gain respect.

Child Sockology (1953)

Swee'Pea crawls around a construction site.  This time Popeye competes with Bluto to see who saves him.

Fireman's Brawl (1953)

Firemen Popeye and Bluto try to save Olive and her house.  Teamwork, though, has never been their forte.





Popeye's Twentieth Anniversary (1954)

Another "clip" cartoon.



Greek Mirthology (1954)

It's Popeye who is Hercules this time, a hero who gets his strength from garlic before he discovers that spinach is even better.


 

 

Fright To The Finish (1954)


Bluto haunts Olive's house on Halloween and frames Popeye.



Penny Antics (1955)

Yet another "clip" show.

Car-azy Drivers (1955)

Popeye tries to teach Olive how to drive.  (Sometimes you can just see disasters waiting to happen, can't you?)

Out To Punch (1956)

Bluto finds ways to slow Popeye down and sap his strength before a scheduled prize fight.  Of course, one can of spinach makes Bluto's schemes irrelevant.

Assault And Flattery (1956)

Bluto uses the courts to get at Popeye, proving that he was a man ahead of his time.  The brute sues Popeye for injuries.  Other than that, it's just another "clip" cartoon.

I Don't Scare (1956)

A superstitious Olive Oyl is tricked by Bluto into thinking that Popeye is bad luck.

The Crystal Brawl (1957)

A disguised Popeye's crystal ball shows Olive clips from other cartoons to prove to her that she should break a date with Bluto.
