Popeye and Bluto are rival taxi drivers. Popeye is driving the 1930s-looking boxy vehicle while Bluto has sleek limo-type taxi. In their first contest over a customer, Bluto ruins Popeye's cab and steals the customer. Our sailor man hero has to use his pipe as a blowtorch to weld the cab back together.

The next customer is Olive Oyl. How Popeye and Bluto snatch that "fare" away from each, while driving down city streets, is very creative and very funny.

The ending was "cute," too, especially after it looked like Popeye was doomed for sure, when Bluto took his spinach saying, "There will be no spinach in this picture!"

Also, the colors in this animated short were spectacular. They really did a nice job of this in restored and remastered from 35mm "75th Anniversary Collector's Edition of Popeye The Sailor Man."
