Shiver Me Timbers!

Original release date: July 27, 1934

Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy run ashore on an island and come across an old wrecker marked, "Ghost Ship Beware!" Olive and Wimpy don't want to get near it -- but how intimidating can a ghost ship be when it plays the Laurel & Hardy theme as a come-on? Naturally, as soon as the trio boards the ghost ship, it sets sail, and the stowaway ghosts do their best to scare the passengers.

A wonderfully atmospheric "horror cartoon," with lush animation throughout (pay attention to the "ghostly" Olive, among other delights). A real treasure.

My rating:

2007, Steve Bailey.
