This cartoon makes use of Fleischer's Tabletop process, which animates the cels vertically between multi-plane set pieces in order to create the feeling of depth. Used here for the city street in the last scene. The whole effect is lost in the color version, as the backgrounds is a flat redraw. See more »

Olive is moving out of her apartment so Popeye shows up to help her but she turns him away saying she needs a real strong man to do the job. In walks Bluto and before long him and Popeye are going back and forth on who is the strongest.
Fans of the series will enjoy this fast-paced short, which once again has some of the best animation that you're going to see from a film of this era. Once again the animation is extremely impressive and especially all the details in it. Another big reason for the success is the non-stop fighting between Popeye and Bluto as they try to show which one is the strongest. There are several funny gags but the highlight is a scene where Popeye tosses a piano out the window and then races down several stairs in order to catch it.
