Storyline

Popeye's on a battleship. He's in class to learn artillery, but it's way too technical for him; when he gets his hands on the gun, he fires everywhere, including at his own ship. That gets him banished to the boiler room. A real Japanese sub comes along. The sailors can't handle it, so Popeye eats his spinach and dives in to fight the sub by hand. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Popeye The WWII Hero - Part 2
12 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second wartime cartoon and Popeye is back on-board the big Navy ship with a bunch of sailors who all look twice his size. The captain is explaining something about the ship which sounds so complicated that even Popeye is totally lost, which is understandable.

A quiz then follows and Popeye can't write one answer. Afterward they all then go up top for some target practice. Naturally, our Sailor Man screws that up, too, and is sent to boiler room to shovel coal However, when an enemy submarine is spotted off starboard, there is only one sailor who can stop it? Care to guess who? How he does it is pretty funny with some unique sight gags. Just picture Popeye as a human torpedo and you get some idea of what you'll see.

Sometimes, Popeye is about as powerful as Superman.
