Popeye Question

Unread post by Jim Roots » Thu Jul 17, 2008 7:49 am

One of the old Popeye cartoons has a scene in which Olive Oyl is continually punched in the face, and each punch results in a new hairstyle. Is this clip available anywhere on the Net?

The short is NEVER KICK A WOMAN.

Here's a link, unfortunately it's COLORIZED.

Not just colorized but REDRAWN by Korean outsourcing who skipped every frame, mangled the English language and made pumpkins green...

Here's b/w version on youtube

I'm assuming this is not redrawn and would have been the version I saw as a kid on tv.

I like Fleischer animation, but never a Popeye fan, really. I always liked the 3D moving background thing. Fleischer had a patent for it which was pretty cool. Found it, googling for the patent: http://www.google.com/patents?id=IIZgAA ... es&cad=0_1

Of course, Fleischer did hold several patents, as did Disney and WB, duh!

Thanks for the directions, guys. That is indeed the film I was looking for.

Even for Popeye, that's a pretty strange and brutal cartoon. I wonder what on earth they were thinking when they made a fully-equipped canoe the centrepiece in the background art of a land-locked gymnasium???

Coincidentally, we showed it at Cinecon this year!

And it's available in all its pristine B&W glory on the first Popeye box set.
