Summertainment: Patriotic Popeye (1957)

Kids will be kids. Popeye is trying to teach his nephews about enjoying a safe July 4th holiday, but the boys want to play with fireworks, regardless of the consequences. "Patriotic Popeye" has some hard lessons to teach.

Riding on the buses yesterday, I couldn't help but notice the increasing number of "safe" fireworks being sold, but "safe" isn't always a guarantee. New York Giants defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul found that out a year ago, and lost part of a finger as a result of an accident.

"Patriotic Popeye" gets an A-.
