Olive Oyl has a tough time putting Swee'pea (who keeps on going outside on a wire) for a nap. When Popeye visits Olive, he shows her the Jeep - a dog that can disappear. When Swee'pea disappears again, both Popeye and the Jeep look for him. Written by

I enjoyed this particular cartoon, but Popeye's magical dog, "The Jeep," never did much for me. I never quite understood why he was inserted in this popular, long-running cartoon. Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto, Wimpy and Swee' Pea were good enough to provide tons of entertainment over the decades. What was the purpose of adding a "magical" dog that could disappear? It didn't seem to fit in with the human characters, but that's just my opinion. I see fellow reviewer "The Wolf 101" here agrees. I, too, prefer the ones (90 percent of them) in which Popeye and Bluto go at each other, or Popeye just entertains us by himself.
Nonetheless, this was a fun cartoon - not laugh-out-loud funny, but humorous and entertaining enough. Basically, we follow Jeep and Popeye on a scent, trying to find whatever happened to Swee' Pea. It appears the little tyke can't stay in his crib, and sneaks out the window of the high rise and likes to crawl along the telephone wires! Popeye, as usual, provides the humor as he mumbles his way following the dog and wondering if the Jeep will ever discover where Swee' Pea went on his latest trip.
