#CotD: Wimpy isn’t just after hamburgers in “What– No, Spinach?” which does feature the famous green vegetable in the end.
What– No, Spinach? (1936) — Popeye the Sailor Cartoon Series
Wimpy is front and center, working in Bluto’s Restaurant. He tries all sorts of tricks to get free food at the diner — mostly burgers, of course.
His tactics include pouring hot sauce on Popeye’s roast duck. You actually feel a little sorry for Bluto, who’s working pretty hard back in the kitchen and has his only customer (Popeye) try to walk off without paying. Still, he gets his inevitable spinach-fueled beating at reel’s end, sure enough.
Wimpy sings a little burger song to himself at the beginning and end of this cartoon.
