Here's a Popeye cartoon ("King of the Mardi Gras")that sort of exposes the levitation illusion at 4:08 into the clip.

Gee ... This was exposed back in 1935. Of course no one has been able to do it that way ever since!

Did anyone else notice that Bluto was just doing his job and Popeye was the jerk trying to horn-in on his business? So much for that childhood hero worship...

This is why I have never performed the levitation in public, my fear that someone in the audience has seen that video.

Kids saw it in the Popeye collection video and called me on it, too.

And to think ... not much has really changed in magic since 1935!
