Baseball: Bluto's Bears vs. Popeye's Pirates, and both Bluto and Popeye have girlfriends cheering them on. As they take the field, Popeye drops his spinach. Bluto eats it, then refills the can with grass. Popeye's team, with Popeye batting first, strikes out. Bluto's team, with Bluto batting fourth, gets 3 singles; Popeye eats his "spinach" (to no avail, of course), and Bluto gets a grand slam homer. Last inning: Bluto's team leads 21-0, Popeye at bat. Bluto's first pitch turns invisible. The second pitch hovers just before the plate. The third pitch turns all kinds of loops at the plate; Popeye has struck out. For some reason, Popeye then takes the mound. After another hit, Popeye plants some spinach seeds, and eats the quick-growing plant. He then throws two quick strikes (which he catches himself), then a hit which he catches himself, and so on, taking a bonus inning and winning the game 22-21. Written by

Who cares about a strike with Popeye and Bluto around?
This is much cheaper than attending a major league game and more entertaining to boot, although at times it bears little resemblance to anything drawn up by Abner Doubleday. Olive has the best scene, right at the end. Great fun and worth watching. Recommended.
