PATRIOTIC POPEYE (Theatrical Release USA 1957)


Ben Meyers’ Rating:4.0|5.0 Stars

Patriotic Popeye—cute short film—offers a sweet watch about the Fourth of July. It has a strong sense of where it is going and how to get there. Very cohesive toon that has a nicely placed moral inside. This toon makes a good,  simple child/adult share about the Fourth of July and provides a nice leap point for discussion about this American holiday, and how it is a pinnacle part of the American year and the remembrance of how Americans won their freedom.

Popeye’s nephews are setting off fireworks and giving Popeye challenges because they are a little too young to play with fireworks.
