Daytime Heroes: Popeye in Hits & Missiles (1960)

Popeye takes a trip to the moon, along with Olive & Wimpy, in 1960's "Hits & Missiles". Portions of this short were excerpted when Jack Mercer (Popeye, Wimpy) appeared several years later on To Tell The Truth.

I believe this was intended to be released through Paramount, but they had closed their cartoon studio, and a handful of unfinished shorts were completed and released as part of King Features' TV package.

Rating: A.
