It's the middle ages (sort of); Popeye is working in Bluto's Beanery.

Bluto is going to the ball where Princess Olive will choose her mate.

Popeye's fairy godpappy appears and it's a reverse Cinderella story, with a car created from a can of spinach.

This is the 50's Popeye.

So the animation isn't as good.

Not like to 30s Popeye.

But it's better than some of the later Popeye's.

And wasn't Altman's version the wort animation?

This short is not going to change your life but it's OK for a gay themed cartoon. Popeye plays Cinderella.
