Bimbo is out on the ocean, fishing in a lifeboat, when he catches a big one -- or it catches him and drags him down to the bottom of the ocean.
I must confess I am not overly fond of Bimbo, Fleischer's first talkie "star". He is little more than a white-faced clown who does random funny things and has random funny things done to him. I prefer clowns with recognizable characters and so, apparently, did the movie-going audience of the era, so that first sexy Betty Boop and later tough sailor Popeye pushed him quickly off the screen.
That said, this is a typically decent Fleischer from the era as Dave Fleischer keeps the gags coming fast and thick, and throws in a couple of songs along the way. The net effect is a decent time-waster.
