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 cartoon marks the first time Pinto Colvig performs the voice of Bluto, a role which he continues to regularly perform until 1942. See more »
I'm expecting a check.
[Under his breath]
Oh you're lucky.
Would you loan me a penny for which I will gladly pay you Tuesday.
[Handing him a penny]
Okay I'll think it over, young fella.

Popeye and Bluto are barkers desperate to lure customers to their neighboring penny arcades. Nobody is coming in. Wimpy walks by and the boys battle to get him. The arcades play clips of other Popeye shorts. When the boys' battle turns physical, Wimpy is able to collect a hatful for customers rushing in to see them fight. This is essentially a clip show. The premise is better than most clip shows. Turning into a fight is brilliant but it is nevertheless a clip show.
