Toon Rock: Me Musical Nephews (1942)

Popeye got a well deserved break from beating up Bluto. Unfortunately for him, what he gets instead is an all-night jam session put on by "Me Musical Nephews" in this 1942 Famous Studios/Paramount short, which was remade 8 years later as "Riot in Rhythm".

Major bonus here is the original opening, which ye scribe has never seen, since all the syndicated prints from from AAP. It's too bad that even after "Riot", they never did a sequel.

Rating: A.
