Popeye finally pops the question....and Olive declines!
4 January 2020 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the short begins, something very unusual is happening....Popeye is FINALLY asking Olive Oyl to marry him. Instead of giving him an answer right away, she tells him she needs a night to think about it. During the interim, Olive has a dream in which she is now the mother of Popeye's demonic children.

This episode in the Popeye series is interesting because it's the first time you see Popeye's familiar nephews...though here they play Popeye's children in the dream sequence. The name of one of the children is different but other than that they are essentially the nephews....and brats like Popeye's nephews. These awful kids returned two years later for "Pip-eye, Pup-eye, Poop-eye an' Peep-eye".

Overall, an enjoyable and well animated Popeye cartoon. Neither brilliant nor a must-see but important for fans due to the kids.
