Popeye pushes a baby pram down city sidewalks and lots of noise keeps the kid awake and crying. In typically brutal manner, Popeye deals with the noise makers including a busking Harpo Marx, music school, construction site, and car horns.
Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy land in America thanks to her rowing. Popeye quickly turns some trees into a log cabin. He hunts for ducks and encounters some pesky Indians while another band of natives surround his two friends in the cabin.
