We’ve jumped all around Popeye’s film career this week while ReFrederator has been featuring its Popeye-a-thon. Which brings up the issue of the sailor man’s later, post-Max Fleischer cartoons. Okay, okay, okay — everyone agrees the early weird-ass Fleischer entries are, on the whole, better — BUT — I kinda like the slick Paramount Famous Cartoon Studio installments too. Don’t hate me.
For good or bad, Popeye is more of an everyman in these later films. He has an astounding array of occupations. He has many ordinary homeowner-type concerns. He has a nice suburban house.
He has teeth.
So sue me.
