Toon Legends: Popeye and the Spinach Stalk (1960)

Jack & The Beanstalk was never meant to be like this.

Popeye and company skewer the children's classic, as only producer-director Jack Kinney could conceive, with "Popeye & the Spinach Stalk". Jackson Beck not only voices Brutus, cast here as the giant, but serves as narrator.

We'll spotlight Eugene the Jeep in another short down the road. Not one of the better entries from this era.

Rating: B-.
