Popeye and Olive are grooving to the sounds of Wimpy the organ grinder, but their neighbor Bluto wants him to move on. Popeye and Bluto settle their disagreement with their usual calm, reasoned discussion (this one includes Bluto stuffing Popeye into a garbage can, then launching him with a garden roller, after which Bluto stomps on Wimpy's organ).

Wimpy, of all people, is an organ grinder, and he's trained his little monkey to feed him a hamburger every few seconds or so while he grinds away on the musical instrument.
Olive Oyl, Popeye and Bluto all live in upper-floor rooms at this nearby hotel and are being entertained by the music and monkey below. The monkey climbs up and gets a little treat from both Olive and Popeye. However, Bluto opens his window and yells at them to go away. He throws a heated coin at the monkey, who grabs it and is burned. Wow, talk about sadistic!
Well, of course, Popeye comes to the rescue of the music maker and his little friend, who start to run away as Bluto throws more objects down on them.
There is a song that is played throughout this cartoon. I can't recall the name of it but I remember it from a Shirley Temple film. She and Bill Robinson danced to this number, and it was one of their better numbers together.
Anyway, Popeye makes Bluto play for spanking - so to speak - the monkey! It's nothing super, but it was another entertaining cartoon from the mid '30s.
