I-Ski Love-Ski You-Ski (1936)

I-Ski Love-Ski You-Ski I-Ski Love-Ski You-Ski Review

 I-Ski Love-Ski You-Ski is a 1936 animated short from Popeye the Sailor series. It is one of the most enjoyable, albeit somewhat disappointing shorts.

The setting here is charming and the animation in particular is so wonderful. They didn’t use this setting particularly well and that was very disappointing. The action was quite boring and typical up until that last act. But that last act had some interesting action scenes and it ended really well.

I also liked the humor here. Popeye’s lines are continually funny and endearing whereas the emphasis on Olive and her appearance, especially legs, does produce a lot of giggles. Bluto isn’t as good, but he is solid nonetheless. I liked the beginning and the ending is really good and despite that flawed middle section, this entry is still so charming that I really enjoyed it.

I-Ski Love-Ski You-Ski has a disappointing action, but the setting is interesting, the animation is really charming, the characters are well utilized and it has its endearing and funny moments.

 My Rating – 4.1
