Wimpy Makes A Burger
Chicago friend and burger fanatic Jay sent me this clip from a Popeye episode. In the clip we get to see J. Wellington Wimpy sing his ode to the burger as he grinds and cooks one for himself. Notice how even in cartoons back then they got it right and scooped the beef, not hand pattied it. I like the way he brushes the burger with mustard on the griddle, but unfortunately it looks like he goes overboard with the spices (chopped onion, salt, and pepper). Also, he sings about how he likes it 'rare' and barely keeps it on the flattop for 20 seconds. Now that's rare!
