Storyline

Popeye is climbing the Alps, and Olive is being hauled up behind him on a rope, taking pictures. Mountain guide Bluto spots them through binoculars, and goes crazy over Olive. He immediately intercepts them and tries to convince them they need a professional guide. Popeye resists, so Bluto uses a number of tricks: cutting the rope, burning a bridge they are crossing, using a magnet to break Popeye's climbing pick. Olive finally has had enough, and goes off with Bluto, who promptly gets her alone in a dark cave. Her screams bring Popeye, whose battle with Bluto carves a Mount Rushmore replica in a mountain-top. Bluto knocks Popeye into a snowbank, where a Saint Bernard dog revives him with spinach (after consulting a handy Popeye comic book). Popeye bashes Bluto into a mountain, forming a Paramount logo.

Another (Nearly)Lost Treasure From Famous Studios
28 July 2009 | by druid333-2See all my reviews

In this Popeye short, Popeye & Olive are mountain climbers. Olive is taking photographs of all there is to see,while Popeye does all of the grunt work. Bluto as a tour guide,tries to convince Olive that they need a professional,but Popeye couldn't care less for Bluto's service. Most of the short is Bluto,trying to get Olive away from Popeye. Does Bluto win out? Watch & decide for yourself. Jack Mercer,in addition to providing Popeye's voice,also co-wrote the episode (Mercer,in addition to writing,or co-writing a number of the Popeye shorts, actually started out as a staff writer for Paramont's short subjects division as the sound era just kicked in),along with series regulars, Jackson Beck (Bluto),and Mae Questal (Olive). Funny,but pretty much standard Popeye fare from Famous Studios (but does make creative use of the Paramont logo at film's conclusion). Can be seen at various times on Cartoon Networks sister station,Boomerang at various times (check your local listings for air times & cable provider). Pre ratings.
