Popeye is being honored for his 20 years of films, in a dinner hosted by 'Bob Hope' (several other celebrities are present, like 'Jimmy Durante', Bing Crosby, 'Jerry Lewis' and 'Dean Martin'). When called on to make a speech, he instead shows clips from two of his movies. Bluto does a slow burn through this, finally stuffing Popeye's trophy onto Popeye's head - but the trophy is full of spinach, so Popeye clobbers Bluto. Written by

The "20th anniversary" does not take into account of Popeye's first appearance in the comics in 1929, but only his 1933 film debut a little over twenty years prior to this short film. See more
