From Comics to Toons: Popeye in Coffee House (1960)

Popeye's in for a culture shock when he finds Olive Oyl has turned into a beatnik. Then again, so has Brutus. The Beat Generation may never be the same again after "Coffee House". Like, dig it, daddy-o!

For whatever reason, Bluto's name was changed to Brutus, though still voiced by the same actor (Jackson Beck), when King Features began producing their own cartoons. Luckily, Hanna-Barbera corrected this mistake when they acquired a license 18 years later.

Rating: B-.
