Storyline

Bluto is Robinson Crusoe; Popeye and Olive approach his island on a raft. This is Bluto's excuse to break out the romance: he gets his etchings from his "Hope" chest (next to the "Crosby" chest) and lays out a feast. But Olive is more interested in the food than the woo, and Popeye keeps getting in the way. Bluto tries sending him on some fool's errands. First, he decks Popeye out as a hunter, but Popeye returns with a lion, tiger, elephant, and a sea monster. Next, he starts Popeye digging for a phony treasure, then buries him in rocks, but Popeye surfaces with a chest full of gold coins. Bluto's had enough; he stuff Popeye in the chest, mashes it flat, and tosses it in the alligator pit. Olive's screams get Popeye's attention; he eats the spinach and bursts out. He socks Bluto into the gorilla's lair, where he finds himself chased by an eager female gorilla. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

unfortunate racial stereotypes, but good cartoon.
4 December 1998 | by budman-4See all my reviews

This cartoon is rarely broadcast these days because it contains racial stereotypes. This is too bad, because it's a good Robinson Crusoe/desert island romance spoof.
