The Saturday Afternoon Movie: Chinese Popeye

6 Apr

April 6, 2013


Saturday is usually the province of Saturday Comics or its occasional step-brother, The Treasure Chest of Terrible Toys. But this is Popeye Week! And Mr. Blog, like Popeye, will not be bound any mere arbitrary rules, even if they are his own arbitrary rules. Especially if they are his own arbitrary rules.

This has popped (Popeyed?) up all around the internet lately but I can only find this short clip. No one seems to have any more. So what is Chinese Popeye about? It is a chinese film about Popeye (duh) and in this clip, he fights mummies.

Yes, I said mummies. So sit back, relax, and prepare yourself for Chinese Popeye. (I’m sure there is a real name for this but everyone just seems to call it Chinese Popeye, and frankly no matter what it is really called, I’m sticking with chinese Popeye.)

If this was out on DVD I would buy it. Probably for no more than $5 from the bootleg peddler on the street, but I’d still buy it.

    Weird, wild stuff. Maybe a little Jackie Chan – ish ?

    I think the term “Chinese Popeye ” is a stretch, but…..
