Travis McClain’s review published on Letterboxd:
I've always been conflicted about Popeye. On the one hand, I dig that he stands up to the bully Bruto. On the other hand, I've never cared for Olive Oyl being a fickle trophy to be won. The Blutos of the world act the way they do in large part because the Olive Oyls of the world reward them for their boorish behavior. This short does nothing to win me over, frankly. I suppose it's amusing to see so many superstitions crammed into a few minutes, but even that isn't all that interesting.
Popeye would do well to give up and content himself with the knowledge that nothing but misery awaits the two of them. Meanwhile, he could have a successful career as a spinach salesman and attract all kinds of spinach salesmen groupies.
