The Best New Year's Eve Cartoon Ever

Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog bids a not particularly fond farewell to 2011 with this stellar, upbeat and good-natured seasonal cartoon, which is available for purchase on the Popeye The Sailor 1933-1938 DVD box set.

Let's Celebrake is one of the rare cartoons in the series in which Popeye and Bluto aren't literally at each other's throats - and that's a refreshing change, even for toon heads such as I. It is NOT a rare instance among the Fleischer Studio Popeyes in which voice artists extraordinaire Jack Mercer (both Popeye and Grandma), Mae Questel (Olive Oyl) and Gus Wickie (Bluto) outdo themselves throughout.

To all readers of this blog, make it a fun and safe New Year. In other words, don't booze it up, toke it up and drive, PLEASE - that's what friends' couches and cheap motels are for!
