"The Hungry Goat"

Don't hate me, but I'm the proud owner of restored logo-free uncut copies of ALL the b/w Popeye cartoons made by Fleischer and Famous, from the sailor's debut in the Betty Boop cartoon "Popeye the Sailor" to "Cartoons Ain't Human".

I want to share with you some pictures from my great copy of "The Hungry Goat", one of the best Famous Popeye cartoons.

"The Hungry Goat" was the most Averyesque of all the Famous/Fleischer cartoons in terms of totally demolishing the fourth wall, to the point of even having the kid in the audience (in Jack Mercer's Felix the Cat voice) express the real audience's sentiments about Popeye eating his spinach and socking him one. And the r-e-a-l-l-y long held poses were something even Chuck Jones wouldn't have dared try. Too bad nothing like this ever showed up again after Dan Gordon left the studio.

(BTW Andrea -- Is your copy the restored version by Cartoon Network from three years ago, or an original B&W print minus the AAP titles?)

My favorite part of this cartoon was when the goat realized the name of the cartoon and asked the the man who running the camera to rewinded the film so the goat could start this cartoon all over. Than the scene play backward complete with the goat singing "Jingle Jangle Jingle" backwards as well!

Looks pretty good for an AAP print (I assume it's the versoon the folks on "The Popeye Show" used to restore the opening and closing Paramount titles for Cartoon Network, and that it's the version that will show up when "The Hungry Goat" finally makes it to DVD).

Oh no,
the version that will be on DVD will be restored a second time, to look as good as the cartoons in the LTGCs

I was thinking more of the end, which the folks doing "The Popeye Show" had to go out and digitially rework to extend the animation of the goat to match the audio while at the same time superimposing the 1938-43 closing Paramount logo on the theater screen. My guess is they won't pay to have that done again, and will use the version that showed up on Cartoon Network in 2003 (Warners has used the audio tracks from the 1995 dubbed versions by the Turner people for a number of the pre-48 color shorts on the Golden Collections, so they have cheated slightly in the past in the restoration process).

I love the design of the goat. I think this style is not adequate for Popeye (I believe the old Fleischer ones had a more definitve style) but this looks pretty damn good anyway.

I saw the redrawn version of this cartoon as part of a Boomerang Popeye marathon, and i can't say that i enjoyed it much. It seemed like a cheap imitation of the Screwball animal cartoons coming from the West Coast.

That having been said, i hope Warner does a better restoration when it comes time to put it on DVD

Off topic: This is sort of a request. Does anybody remember the Three Wise Monkeys? I don't remember what cartoon they made their appearance in but I can still remember them singing "See no evil, here no evil, speak no evil noooo." I used to love that cartoon, I can almost still hear them singing if I imagine hard enough. I must have been four or five when I saw that cartoon. I don't know how that particular cartoon made such a lasting impressions on me, and I'd love to see it again, or at least some screen captures, to see and hear if it's the way I still remember it.

Does wanyone know what I'm talking about or know how I could get ahold of it?

I also need to know where I can find that 3 wise monkeys cartoon. It is my earliest memory and I do not know what it is. I have spent a very long time searching for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's a great, funny cartoon. I think some of the jokes were ruined in the colorized version, including the ending.

This cartoon's end is so bizarre and it has come to an abrupt halt.
