Popeye sails into Mexico, where Olive is doing the Mexican hat dance in a bar. He enjoys the show, until Bluto comes in and clears the bar, except for Popeye. They compete a bit, until Bluto brings in his gang. Popeye has his spinach, and holds them off, but in the confusion, Bluto sneaks upstairs to Olive's room where he has his way with her.

This is an early Popeye short, if i'm not mistaken, the first official Popeye cartoon (his first appearance was in a Betty Boop with the title, "Popeye the Sailor") and the seams show a bit here. The basic concepts are started here and it's an enjoyable cartoon, but nothing special. Worth watching. Recommended.
