Olve brings her new goldfish onto Popeye's ship, but the fish jumps out of its bowl and into the sea. Olive convinces Popeye to go after it, but the fish wants to play and manages to avoid Popeye until both get trapped inside a jellyfish. After taking a severe pounding from the jellyfish, Popeye eats his spinach, takes on various other marine life, and returns the goldfish to its bowl. But Olive can see the fish is unhappy in the bowl, and sets it free again, which is more than Popeye can stand. Written by

This is a "fish tale," not a romance story involving Olive's fickleness to Popeye. "Fickle," in this case, must mean just changing her mind as does with a little goldfish in this entertaining cartoon.
The is a short (five minutes) but very wild ride as Olive's new pet goldfish "Gertrude" jumps overboard, and Popeye has to rescue her (after Olive calls him a coward for not wanting to do it. You could blame him; the goldfish spat in Popeye's eye. He's a wise little sucker.) The bulk of the cartoon, then, is Popeye's chase in the ocean after this little fish. He meets all kinds of creatures, including a giant jellyfish, which swallows our Sailor Man.
I won't say everything that is in here. Suffice to say it's very fast-moving and the artwork is good, too. Sight gags are numerous, both above and below water, and most of them are pretty clever. If you're a Popeye fan, you'll enjoy this.....particularly the ending!
