Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy in SHIVER ME TIMBERS! (1934) – A ship-shape adventure

ShiverMeTimbers

Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy run ashore on an island and come across an old wrecker marked, “Ghost Ship – Beware!” Olive and Wimpy don’t want to get near it — but how intimidating can a ghost ship be when it plays the Laurel & Hardy theme as a come-on? Naturally, as soon as the trio boards the ghost ship, it sets sail, and the stowaway ghosts do their best to scare the passengers.

A wonderfully atmospheric “horror cartoon,” with lush animation throughout (pay attention to the “ghostly” Olive, among other delights). A real treasure.

On a rating scale of 1 to 4 spinach cans, I give this cartoon: CanCanCanCan
