Popeye and Olive pass a gym where an attractive woman is demonstrating boxing equipment. Popeye gets Olive to come in, where he teaches her to box. She has trouble at first, but when the pretty girl comes on to Popeye, she's inspired. They fight over Popeye, with Olive losing until she eats Popeye's spinach. Written by

Probably the greatest ever Popeye cartoon. An off-the-wall, vaguely erotic plot line, with an original tin pan alley song ("Learn the Art of Self Defense") that deserves to be revived by some post-modern art band. A color computerized version is alleged to exist. Does anyone out there know where one can get it (or even a regular taped version)? It's criminal that King Syndicate will not release most of the Max Fleischer Popeye films.
