Olive asks Popeye to walk her dog Flyppy, but Popeye is embarrassed because Fluffy is as weak looking as the name implies. Sure enough, when Bluto and his bulldog come by, the dogs (and their owners) get in a fight.
Popeye and Olive are attending a football game; Bluto's team takes the field, and Olive is swept off her feet, becoming a cheerleader for him. Popeye signs up and becomes quarterback of the opposing team, which is skinny and pathetic looking, compared to Bluto's team of huge bruisers. Things go badly, of course, until Popeye eats his spinach and becomes a whole football team himself, winning both the game and Olive. Written by

Olive Oyl forces Popeye to go to a football game where she ends up leaving him for Bluto, In order to win her back Popeye joins the other team. The highlight of this film is a scene where Popeye think he has the football and is running it back for a touchdown but in reality he just has Bluto's head and is dragging him. The football action is pretty nice throughout as Popeye ends up having to plan the other team by himself. Wimpy appears in a couple scenes and adds some nice laughs as well.
