It’s the Natural Thing to Do is a 1939 animated short from Popeye the Sailor series. It is a very subpar entry that doesn’t utilize its premise well.
Yes, the premise itself is absolutely fantastic and so perfect for this series’ treatment. Bluto and Popeye want to become refined instead of rough and that’s great. But how that plot is presented is very unfortunate. There isn’t anything hilarious here whatsoever and the action is very subpar.
I loved the animation and the clothes they wore. Olive was particularly well animated and so funny in high heels and a dress. And she also got some good laughs near the end where she laughed at Popeye’s misfortune. But those two are forgettable in this one and the fight at the end seemed mediocre. It’s such a lost potential.
