Ug ug ug ug ug ug! Grab your schooners and your spinach cans as NostalgiaCast looks back at POPEYE, Robert Altman's live-action, comedy-musical adaptation of the classic E.C. Segar comic strip. Jonny and Darin stare wide-eyed in wonder at all the fantastical sights, sounds, and cartoon shenanigans of seaside Sweethaven, and what happens to the townsfolk there when a muttering, semi-deformed sailor man steps off the docks and into their hearts. But does Altman's signature style lend itself to the comic book format? Or do the whimsical songs and spot-on character impersonations get lost in the fray? Have a listen and we'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today!
