Yet another example of how cantankerous Poopdeck Pappy is
Pest Pilot repeats the theme of previous Fleischer-produced and directed Popeyes, to wit, the cantankerous nature of Poopdeck Pappy. In this one, Popeye turns from sailor to aviator, operating an airport with the caption "Airplanes is the Safest Things on Earth". Poopdeck Pappy displays his usual cantankerousness, such as he surely did in King Features' Thimble Theater comic strip, insisting that he IS young enough to pilot a plane. Popeye is unwilling to chance it, but Pappy pleads so his son locks him out; Pappy gets a plane that he finds outside, and takes it into the air, eventually crashing. Pappy was not hurt, so Popeye decides to give him wings, and let him operate a riding lawn mower! All in all, another fine example of what Pappy was like. It is notable that Poopdeck Pappy appeared only once or twice in the FAMOUS STUDIO Popeyes, while Eugene the Jeep did not appear at all, and J. Wellington Wimpy appeared in a few. The difference between the Fleischer and the Famous Studio Popeye cartoons thus has become manifest
