I Eats My Spinach
Seasin's Greetinks! is the first Christmas-themed cartoon short starring Popeye the Sailor, and the fourth in the overall series from Fleischer Studios. It was released on December 17, 1933 and stars William Costello as Popeye, William Pennell as Bluto and Bonnie Poe as Olive Oyl.
Popeye gives Olive a pair of ice skates as a Christmas present and teaches her how to skate, but Bluto interrupts the lesson to show his affection to her, but she gives him the cold shoulder. He starts to cut the ice and she floats on the broken pieces on the running river and calls to Popeye for help. As Bluto keeps punching Popeye to keep him from saving her, Olive sees a waterfall and calls for help again. Popeye punches Bluto in and out of the water in a ice cube and sends him to the ice box in the nearest town. He rushes to save Olive, but soon falls down the waterfall and climbs back up to save her. As he revives her, Bluto rolls a big snowball to destroy them, but his plan backfires and he rolls down the hill with it. Popeye uses his spinach, hits the snow out of Bluto to make it fall, hits him again, and stars appear out of him which decorate a Christmas tree. Popeye says "Season's Greetings to you all!" and the cartoon irises out.
