Popeye picture

Continuity mistake: Popeye goes to Bluto's ship. He finds his pappy there: he's tied to the chair hanging in the ceiling. Popeye gets excited, and notice that before he hugs his pappy he takes his pipe out of his mouth. When we see Popeye again, the pipe is back to his mouth. Too fast to be real.
