Liked on YouTube: Popeye and Olive Oyl cover “Oriental Swing” (by Lil Hardin Armstrong – 1938)

A new Cookie Monster video might be on the horizon! But for now, here’s something a little different. I know, I know… by 2020 standards the lyrics are not exactly culturally sensitive. And neither are many of the early Popeye cartoons. But if you’re like me and you love old music and classic animation, maybe you’ll get some enjoyment out of this!

For me it’s like a glimpse into the YouTube content from an alternative timeline, where maybe Nikola Tesla invented the Internet in the 1930’s.
