B.O.
~ Adolf Hitler

Adolphus "Adolf" Hitler was a 1940's German dictator, who ruled Germany from 1933-1945 and led The Nazi Party to invade Poland and causing a mass genocide, instigating World War II. He is directly and centrally responsible for The Holocaust, resulting in the deaths of over 6,000,000 people, most of which were either Jewish, black, or homosexual, (groups that Hitler didn't like), although a number of other people were also killed or at least negatively affected by his actions, just because Hitler didn't like them, also the war itself would claim additional millions and became one of the most infamous and deadly conflicts in the modern era.

Adolf Hitler has been portrayed in the 1943 Popeye the Sailor Man war propaganda cartoon, "Seein' Red, White 'N' Blue".

Biography

In "Spinach Fer Britain", a pair of nazis would go around, attacking Popeye. Every time they landed a strike, they would leap out of their submarine, do the iconic salute and exclaim "Heil Hitler!" before leaping back into the sub.

In "Seein' Red, White 'N' Blue", Popeye the Sailor punched a trio of Kamikaze soldiers in the face and his punch resonated across the world in the form of a flying fist with an American flag sleeve. First, the fist traveled to Japan and went up to Emperor Hirohito and knocked him out cold, but then Hirohito quotes "It should happen to Hitler." which is exactly what the fist went on to do as it flew to Germany.

In Germany, Adolf Hitler was standing in a radio tower, delivering a speech to the German people. Hitler's speech consisted only of him proclaiming "B.O." in a bizarre, atonal, didgeridoo-like voice. The fist came up to Hitler and stopped right in front of his face before doing a Nazi salute. Confused, Hitler did the salute right back. While he did, the fist punched him directly in the face and knocked his mustache off. While this happened, a sign came up saying "Is there a doctor in the house?" with "doctor" crossed out and replaced with "undertaker" in crayon. Hitler got back up and looked around for his mustache. He found it lying on the ground and put it back on his face before dropping back to the floor again. Just then, Hermann Göring came in and picked up Hitler. Hermann worried for Hitler's well-being and begged him to speak to him. Hitler got back up and once again quoted "B.O." in his weird didgeridoo voice before dropping back to the floor again.

Trivia

  • Despite the fact that Adolf Hitler was arguably the primary focus of most, if not all of Popeye's WW2 war propaganda cartoons, the likeness of Hitler only appeared on screen once in the cartoon, "Seein' Red, White and Blue", while he was merely mentioned either directly or indirectly in other cartoons, with the antagonists of the other cartoons generally being the Nazi, Fascist, or Kamikaze soldiers.
  • Hitler quoting "B.O." may have been a reference to a line of commercials at the time, advertising Lifebuoy Soap, which would also explain Hermann Göring's disgusted reaction to Hitler, the second time he said it.
