Cus­tomers Wanted (1939) — Pop­eye the Sailor

CotD: Even back in 1939, stu­dios would release “best of” com­pi­la­tions as new mate­r­ial. “Cus­tomers Wanted” not only was made from 2 pre­vi­ous car­toons, but was remade itself in 1955!

Cus­tomers Wanted (1939) — Pop­eye the Sailor The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Bluto and Pop­eye own com­pet­ing penny arcades that show scenes from their past car­toons, but no cus­tomers are stop­ping in! Wimpy strolls by, and each tries to bribe Wimpy (their only cus­tomer) into watch­ing their great car­toon moments. Nat­u­rally, Wimpy has the nerve to bor­row the nec­es­sary penny and promises to gladly “pay Tues­day.” The rivalry between Pop­eye and Bluto gets out of hand to the point where they start bat­tling each other so fiercely that the enter­pris­ing Wimpy goes out­side and charges a dime to see “the fight of the cen­tury” inside the arcade!
