Bluto's window cleaning service is not above drumming up a little business for himself. But when he gets to Olive's stenographer office, about 10 floors up, she says no: Popeye's going to wash her windows. And the battle is on.Written by

Bluto, owner of the "Paneless Window Washing" store, drums up business by squirting mud all over the windows of the tall building across the street. He then goes over there, with his ladder, and yells out in each window that he's a window-washer, and thus gets business. However, on the 20th floor, where public stenographer Olive Oyl is busy typing, Bluto is rebuffed with a voice that says, "No, thank you." It's Popeye, who's also in the office. "Whaddya mean?" retorts Bluto.
"Because I'm washing 'em," replies Popeye.
The war is on. Both Bluto and Popeye try to outdo each other, showing what tremendous window-washers they are....and they perform some amazing (and funny) feats! After those clever bits, the two of them get into a big fight, as usual, except this time both of them are punching each other despite being on different buildings! (You have to see it.)
This early black-and-white Popeye cartoon was very entertaining and fun to watch. There is something about these primitive-looking '30s cartoons that are unique.
