Popeye and Olive Oyl go to the rodeo where Bluto performs and impresses Olive. Popeye outdoes him with some fancy riding and steer wrestling. Meanwhile, Bluto makes off with Olive, so Popeye eats his spinach to save her and to stop a bull.
Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy land in America thanks to her rowing. Popeye quickly turns some trees into a log cabin. He hunts for ducks and encounters some pesky Indians while another band of natives surround his two friends in the cabin.
Popeye begins his movie career by singing his theme song, demonstrating his strength at a carnival, dancing the hula with Betty Boop, pummeling Bluto, eating his spinach and saving Olive Oyl from certain doom on the railroad tracks.
Popeye has beaten Bluto to a date with Olive. Seeing that Olive is superstitious, Bluto changes the date to Friday the 13th, and proceeds to rig various proofs that bad things will happen if she goes out.
Popeye's legs are sticking through a broken window, and he lowers the sash completely, as though his legs aren't even there. See more »

Oh yeah, because I don't need too much of it, it isn't a big scene, now let me get something I can really read, will ya? These words trip me up, goddamn, but I don't like that.

A very amusing turn of the plotline for the POPEYE series, as Paramount matches him up with a mouse desperately trying to sleep, but cannot due to Popeye's snoring. As a result, the mouse tries various means of eliminating Popeye (while he sleeps, adding to the humor as Popeye wakes up in various uncomfortable situations). A wonderful production, and a nice change of pace from the usual "Bluto wants Olive to date him" scenario.
