Popeye the sailor man and his sweetie Olive Oyl, go for a stroll. They pass the roller skating rink and wants to go skating, only Olive has never skated before and didn't want to learn but Popeye pushed her inside anyway. They rent some cheap skates and hit the rink. Olive is not a quick learner and she has many falls, usually bringing Popeye down with her. Before long, Olive get's the hang of it and rolls out of the rink and rolls all over town. Popeye skates after her. Olive runs afoul of cars, people, tall buildings. Popeye needed help so he reaches for his spinach can...But it wasn't there? Popeye leans out of the theater screen and asks if there was any spinach in the house. A person in the audience tosses a can to him. He gulps it down and speeds after Olive, who got caught on a speeding fire truck. Popeye finally catches Olive, who had so much fun she wants to go again.
Another classic Popeye cartoon. Even though Bluto's not here, Olive Oyl proves to be enough of a menace on roller skates. It's reminiscent to an old Walt Disney cartoon where Mickey Mouse teaches Minnie how to ice skate. Anyway, if you're a huge Popeye fan like I am, A Date to Skate is for you!
