Mister and Mistletoe is the second and final Christmas-themed theatrical animated short starring Popeye the Sailor, produced by Famous Studios and originally released by Paramount Pictures on September 30, 1955.


It's Christmas Eve at Olive's house with Popeye and his nephews, who bid good night to them. Bluto arrives late and decides to disguise himself as Santa Claus. He then keeps Popeye busy with tree trimming duties as he concentrates on copping a sneaker at Olive. When Bluto's beard catches fire and burns off, his disguise is revealed. Bluto reverts to his usual self and chases Olive around the house until Popeye can spinach up and kick his butt back to the North Pole. The nephews awaken and come down to see their toys as Popeye, now in a Santa guise himself, can't fool the little ones who recognize him and ask "Uncle Popeye" if he got them their gifts.
