A Haul in One (Episode 225)
Color remake of the Fleischer Studios short Let’s Get Movin’. This is one of ten Popeye cartoons that could be viewed in the first-person shooter video game The Darkness. Directed by Isadore Sparber. Original air date: December 14, 1956. With Popeye & Bluto Movers on their way to her apartment, Olive has not yet finished packing. When the two partners arrive, they offer to help her as they begin to compete for her attention. With Popeye displaying greater packing skills and speed, Bluto turns his efforts to folding, but is again outdone by Popeye with the help of a vacuum cleaner. Bluto tries putting on a show of strength, but his rival demonstrates he can carry him and more. After trying unsuccesfully to get rid of the competition, the big fellow is angered to see Popeye return to action. He begins tossing Olive’s belongings out the window, leaving Popeye to catch them, which he does quite effortlessly. Finally, Bluto resorts to attacking his “buddy”, trapping his neck in a folding table. Popeye promptly eats his spinach and punches Bluto into woman’s clothing, then ties him to the back of the van as he invites Olive to ride with him in the front.
