Shave man
A Clean Shaven Man
is Popeye's 30th cartoon from Fleischer Studios, released in 1936.


Sitting at Olive's cafe, Popeye and Bluto watch her as she sings "I Want A Clean Shaven Man" while going about her business. Not only is Bluto bearded but Popeye shows abundant stubble on his face. The two get an idea and run off to Wimpy's Barber Shop, where they enter, demanding service, until they notice the "BARBER OUT GETTING A SHAVE" sign (which they have no trouble figuring out is just an excuse he used to get a hamburger). They decide to give each other a shave and a haircut, with Popeye leaving Bluto with an elegant mustache and hairdo.

The latter, however, treats his sailor rival to a broken razor and a scalding towel, leaving him with a messy appearance. When Popeye notices, he is given a beating and dragged away for Olive to make her choice. By eating spinach, not only is Popeye made stronger but also perfectly groomed, turning the tables and dragging the now messy Bluto for Olive to choose. However, they see her going on a date with the bearded George W. Geezil, and end the cartoon kicking each other.

Color remake

A Clean Shaven Man was remade by Famous Studios in 1953 as Shaving Muggs.
