Child Psykologiky (1941)

Child Psykologiky ReviewChild Psykologiky Review

 Child Psykologiky is a 1941 animated short from Popeye the Sailor series. It is one of the best Pappy entries.

Pappy is again the star of a Popeye cartoon, but thankfully this time he gets a pretty good outing. He himself is definitely the highlight here as he was so funny and the ending is hilarious. Popeye is somewhat forgettable here, but Swee’Pea is not as annoying as he usually is and he proved to be a great plot device here.

The premise itself with the two guarding a baby and having different parenting methods isn’t a fresh one as we’ve seen episodes like this before. The humor is good, but it is never as great as this kind of an episode definitely requires. But because Pappy is so funny and because he was for once utilized properly and in a different setting than usual, I ended up really liking this part.

Child Psykologiky is typical, but funny and certainly one of the finest Pappy entries in the series.

 My Rating – 4.1
