Toon Legends: Popeye & Bluto join the Mounties (Yukon County Mountie,1979)

From season 2 of The All-New Popeye Hour:

For once, Popeye (Jack Mercer) & Bluto (Allan Melvin) are on the same side. The guys are in Canada as members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Olive (Marilyn Schreffler) works out of the trading post. The usual chaos abounds, but Popeye has to save both Olive & Bluto, plus the money from the trading post.

Here's "Yukon County Mountie":

The ending is a variant on an old Fleischer short, which we'll have up soon.

Rating: B-.
