“Popeye: Cookin’ With Gags”

The Famous Studios’ cartoon short "Popeye: Cookin' With Gags" (1954) was directed by Izzy Sparber and Thomas Johnson, starring Jack Mercer as ‘Popeye’, Jackson Beck as ‘Bluto’ and May Questel as ‘Olive Oyl’:

Bluto then launches a cruel joke against Olive, frames Popeye, replaces Popeye's spinach with a joke can and runs off with Olive..."
