Flies Ain’t Human (1941)

Flies Ain't Human ReviewFlies Ain’t Human Movie Review

 Flies Ain’t Human is a 1941 animated short from Popeye the Sailor series. It is another very good entry.

1941 did prove to be a resurgence in quality for Popeye the Sailor series as this is another very good entry after ‘Olive’s Sweepstakes Ticket’. I really liked this one. It involves Popeye being harassed by one very annoying fly. It ends with him destroying the entire house while trying to get rid of the fly only to end up with many more of those pests. That ending is funny, but the inclusion of spinach is excellent as rarely have we seen it being used by an animal.

This is again a short that involves just Popeye of the major characters and I am still nostalgic for the whole crew. The humor could have been better in this one, but it is otherwise a strong part with mostly well realized scenarios and we have a great character in this fly who is also quite well animated.

Flies Ain’t Human could have been funnier, but it is very entertaining and it utilizes its premise superbly and with some terrific moments.

 My Rating – 4.1
