NEVER KICK A WOMAN is a Popeye cartoon made in 1936 by the Fleischer studio and distributed by Paramount. Along with Olive Oyl, the story features another girl who tries to take Popeye away from Olive, which is a variation on the usual formula where Bluto tries to take Olive away from Popeye. This character is frequently called a "Mae West type", and that she is, but because Olive Oyl is supposed to be like Zasu Pitts and Zasu Pitts used to be teamed with Thelma Todd I wondered if Thelma Todd might also have been an influence.
"I'm practically there now!," answers Popeye.
