Popeye and Bluto are running for president; it's election day, the vote is tied, and Olive is the only remaining voter. But she won't vote until her chores are done, so Popeye and Bluto compete to cut her wood, plow her fields, and store her hay. And then it's just an old-fashioned fight. Written by

It's the Presidential election time and Popeye, of the Spinach Party, is running against Bluto, of the Blutocratic Party. Popeye promises free ice cream while Bluto dishes out cigars. Things are not looking good for our hero, according to the crowd size. Popeye has just one little dog sitting there waging is tale while Bluto has a huge group of people listening to him.
While the two candidates get in an argument, they notice a neon ticker-tape sign flashing on a nearby building that says the election is all tied up with just one vote left in Green County: a "Miss Olive Oyl." Naturally, our two rivals are going to do their best to persuade Olive to vote for them so they race out to the country outskirts to woo her.
Popeye's methods of chopping and stack wood, plowing the field and putting hay in the hayloft are creative and very funny. Bluto is stupid and ineffective in every thing he does in this cartoon, an appropriate representative of his party name.
