Spinach Victory Garden!
Popeye is one of my cartoon heroes. For starters, we both love our spinach, and we’re fond of Olive Oyl. Though this Popeye short–“RATION fer the DURATION” (1943)–is kinda fuzzy and kinda long, it’s a hoot. From the opening pan over the “Spinach Victory Garden” to the crops of POTatoes, CANtaloupes, and the rest, you will enjoy. Go ahead and watch!
