Trivia

Shorty's girlfriend is Dorothy Lamour, whose actual pictures hang next to his hammock, clashing with the cartoon world. The Hollywood references continue when Shorty makes love to Olive Oyl: he imitates Charles Boyer in Algiers (1938) and throws in a little Maurice Chevalier into the impression. See more »

Shorty gets what he deserves!
4 September 2003 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This is a reasonably decent cartoon, in spite of the fact that Shorty is featured all too prominently here. I don't know if Shorty was meant as a replacement for the august and much revered J. Wellington Wimpy, but his run was mercifully short. Here, he "helps" Popeye propose to Olive, whereas a real friend would buy him track shoes and advise him to run swiftly far away. Shorty gets precisely what all such meddling souls should get-hoisted on his own petard. This is from the early part of the Famous Studios run, so the animation and backgrounds are still good. Worth watching. Somewhat recommended.
