Popeye and Poopdeck Pappy in PROBLEM PAPPY (1941) – A cartoon that hits the heights


Popeye goes to wake up his Pappy, but all he finds in Pappy’s bed is a note: “I wuzzent home last night.” Popeye searches the city and finds Pappy at his new job: flagpole-sitting. Popeye does everything he can to get Pappy down, but only a sudden lightning storm convinces Pappy he’s reaching too high.

Popeye and precarious heights — it’s another animated dream walking. Terrifically terrifying perspective work, as always.

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