This festive entry opens with a lusty rendition of the title song, written by Bob Rothberg and performed by the eponymous "King" Bluto, an accomplished acrobat, sword swallower, high diver, tightrope artist and snake charmer (One quibble: If Bluto is "King of the Mardi Gras", why does the entire story take place on Coney Island in New York?) While Bluto draws a huge crowd, his tap-dancing competitor Popeye performs before an audience of one--namely, Wimpy. Gradually, Popeye wins over the Mardi Gras revellers in general and Olive Oyl in particular, prompting the humiliated Bluto to try to kidnap the heroine. The climactic roller-coaster chase is a tour de force of virtuoso height-and-perspective gags This cartoon marks the debut of the immortal Jack Mercer as the voice of Popeye, a job he filled well into the 1980s.
