Popeye has just finished his house when a band of termites attacks. He traps them in a metal garbage can, but they soon escape and launch a new attack, consuming his picket fence. He comes after them with a garden roller; they run over a bridge, then double back and eat the bridge. Popeye still manages to beat them to the house, where he builds a moat and fills it with water. They are briefly thwarted, then use a can as a boat. They enter the house and start attacking furniture, then the house itself. Their job complete and bellies full, they rest long enough for Popeye to eat his spinach and rebuild his house in steel.Written by

Popeye has just completed building his dream home but things take a sour turn when a group of termites show up and they want to eat anything they can.
Fans of the Popeye series will find this short to be another winner as there are plenty of laughs throughout as well as some good action. Of course, the various highlights surround the termites doing the damage to Popeye's house as he frantically tries to stop them. This here leads to a nice sequence dealing with a lawnmower as well as some creative moments after Popeye eats his spinach.
