Popeye is planting his spinach bed. But just as he finishes, the plants start disappearing. He discovers a gopher filching the little baby plants and starts battling it. They tussle for a while until Popeye gets fed up and fetches his shotgun. He chases the rodent, running past a bull and cornering it, but he doesn't have the heart to shoot. He throws away his gun, hitting the bull, who attacks. The gopher rushes to the spinach patch, eats a plant, and hurls the bull into a ravine. He teams up with Popeye to plant more spinach.

Popeye is out planting baby spinach's in his garden when suddenly they begin to disappear. It doesn't take long for him to realize that a gopher is stealing them.
Fans of Popeye should enjoy this short, which has a fairly good story but also plenty of action to go along with the laughs. Obviously Bluto will always be the greatest villain but the gopher here managed to make for a lot of fun and especially during a prank involving a lawn mower. As you'd expect the animation itself is quite impressive and with such a short running time there's no downtime in regards to entertainment.
