From Comics to Toons: Popeye With Little Swee'pea (1936)

Popeye wants to take Olive to the zoo, but she's too busy, presumably with housework, so she has him take baby Swee'pea instead. The infant's misadventures ultimately put Popeye in some unexpected peril.....

This would most assuredly not be politically correct today. It also illustrates the difficulty that existed in finding something for Popeye to require using his spinach when Bluto isn't around to antagonize him.

Rating: B--.
