Popeye's nephews have been practicing their music and are getting good, but it's bedtime. After Popeye puts them to bed, they discover that many of the things in their bedroom can also be used to make music. And they are also blessed with an uncanny ability to appear to sleep every time Popeye comes to check on them. Written by

Jack Mercer, the voice of Popeye, provided the voices of Popeye's nephews by having his voice sped up. See more »
When the boys play the pants like a bass guitar; stretching them would actually make the notes higher, whereas it's quite the opposite here. See more »
Once upon a time...
There was a big red hooding ride who sat on a muffet and said, "Oh grandma, what big feet you got" So he chopped off his head with a giant beanstalk and they lived happy ever after. Come on, you gotta go to bed now.

Popeye is getting annoyed in this early cartoon because his nephews are making noise playing the trumpet, trombone, drums and piano while our hero is trying to take a nap on his big easy chair. Popeye sends them to bed but they demand a story first. The kids - Peepeye, Poopeye, Pipeye and Pupeye - rush to the bathroom, which is funny to see since all have separate facilitates.
Once in bed, the kids can't sleep and they sure have music in their blood. They improvise, playing bed springs, trash cans, the radiator, and whatever they see in the room to make more music....and they sound good, too.
The last part is hilarious as a woken-up Popeye tries to catch the kids in the act, but they are too quick for him. Overall, a very clever animated short.
