Thanksgiving Toons: Pilgrim Popeye (1951)

Popeye spins a yarn that supposedly had him as a Pilgrim to keep his nephews from taking the family turkey and making Thanksgiving dinner out of it in "Pilgrim Popeye". This 1951 short is an example of just how far Paramount would go to stretch the boundaries of imagination with Popeye, as it didn't quite connect the way the Fleischers did a decade earlier. See for yourself.

Y'think maybe they should've gone to market to buy a frozen turkey?

Rating: C. Not one of Popeye's better outings.
