[5]= “Abusement Park” (1947 / 7 mins) This classic Popeye cartoon sees the sailor and his nemesis competing for Olive Oyl’s affections at carnival games and aboard various rides. ANDY SHINE SAYS: The Oswald animation bored me, but the other films were rather amusing. “On The Loose” features some lengthy funhouse footage with electrified cattle prods and mechanical devices providing many of the gags! ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
