I'll be Skiin' You

Olive Oyl needs rescuing (is that really a surprise?) in I-Ski Love-Ski You-Ski, a 1936 cartoon which opens with 3-D backgrounds and a song.

There’s perspective as Olive is sliding down a mountain and then into mid-air. The camera comes closer on her screaming so it looks like the mountain is directly underneath her.

Popeye catches her (in a manner of speaking). He sings, toot-toot, we’ve seen it all before.

Yes, Popeye mutters “I’ll be skiin’ you” in this cartoon.

Willard Bowsky and George Germanetti are the credited animators with Jack Mercer, Gus Wicke and Mae Questel providing voices.
