Lightning Man

Popeye’s bothered by lightning bolts in the opening scene of “I Yam What I Yam” (1933). No matter. He gathers them into a bunch and punches them into the ocean.

The topper of the gag is the lightning figure becomes human and yells for help as it bobs in the water. It sounds like Gus Wicke in falsetto.

Seymour Kneitel and William Henning receive animation credits.
