Popeye and Olive open a diner, singing the title song. Alas, their first two characters are Wimpy (who actually gets them to fall for the "gladly pay you Tuesday" schtick) and Bluto, who orders 6 sandwiches and refuses to pay for them. This leads, of course, to a fight, which Popeye needs his spinach to win. Written by

We aim to please is one of my favorite Popeye cartoons, the concept isn't too exciting, Popeye and Olive running a diner, but everything works out well. First off, Popeye and Olive's musical act of "We Aim to Please" is very well rendered. Then Wimpy and Bluto try their hand at freeloading in Popeye and Olive's diner. I always like the bit where Bluto orders sandwiches and then Popeye and Bluto do a bit of magic. Beware of poorly retraced colorized versions. This is Wimpy's first appearance in a Popeye cartoon and his debut was very good. There is a goof in the original made more obvious in the colored version where Bluto's hair and beard becomes gray in one scene.
