|Open for business, with a song and a dance!|
|Wimpy and Bluto are hungry, and can smell the food from across the street.|
How will they get a free meal?
|Wimpy adds another dime to his bill as he saunters out.|
|The menu reads as if Popeye had said the various items.|
|Ninja Olive, master of bread slicing!|
|Bluto demonstrates his ability to do card tricks with sandwiches.|
|Popeye doesn't take lightly to his customers tearing up their bill.|
|Perhaps Bluto should've rethought using the register on Popeye!|
|Popeye gets a kick out of his spinach!|
|Bluto's luck has taken a turn for the "wurst"!|
It's nice to see Wimpy using his "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today" line in this cartoon, it would become his signature line in the series (as it was in the comic strip). It's odd to me that in this entry, the hamburgers are prepared on regular slices of bread, yet during the fight between Popeye and Bluto, the burger Wimpy grabs out of the air is on a bun! Odder still is that burgers were being prepared before any customers were even in the diner (one presumes that this diner would fail, as Popeye and Olive weren't running it in later entries).
In the comic strips, the regular diner shown was Roughhouse's Cafe, with Roughhouse being a pretty large man. I believe at some point, Popeye became a partner in the cafe, or at least provided some money to Roughhouse. Wimpy was a regular at the cafe (as was everyone else, as it seemed to be the only restaurant in Sweethaven, the location of the strip), as was George W. Geezil, who hated Wimpy (for the mots part). Neither Roughhouse or Geezil made appearances in the cartoons that I'm aware of, although Roughhouse's Cafe and Geezil did appear in the live-action Popeye movie.
