Popeye and Bluto are running competing penny arcades, trying to bring in customer Wimpy. Of course, he would gladly pay Tuesday for a penny today. And of course, their competing arcades show clips featuring each of them, with well over half this short thus recycled.Written by

This Popeye short is fairly lazy as it features footage from LET'S GET MOVING and THE TWISKER PITCHER. Basically the "story" here is that Popeye and Bluto are working rival movie houses at a carnival. Soon the two of them are fighting over Wimpy and whose movies he will be watching.
Of course, the movies that he watches are the two titles that I mentioned so basically you've got a short that shows several clips from those two movies with a few scenes worth of new material. The two shorts are very good on their own but just watching the clips here is rather pointless and on the whole this isn't a very good short. It certainly doesn't help that the new footage doesn't contain any laughs.
